Ipoh Town Hall was completed in 1916 after extended construction period of over 3 year due to shortage of materials during the early part of the First World War. The building was originally used as the main administrative offices in Ipoh, as well as it Post Office and for a time also the District Police Office. The Post Office, City Government and Police Headquarters have all now now relocated to different buildings within Ipoh and the Town Hall is now used a function space for weddings and public events. This grand old building have proved in the long run too for the costly for the city to update and maintain and has been been sadly abandoned in favour of new buildings which are cheaper to run.
