This is Medan Istana near the State Secretariat building. Busy in the day but dead at night. Opposite this row of shops is Gunong Ceroh. This is a sort of business centre which is an extension of the Old town. I think there are plans to have a hotel in this area.

Medan Istana is new to me and I cannot picture where it fits into the area nearby to YMCA. Gunung Cheroh sounds familiar and I am sure that was where a huge boulder collapsed many years ago, trapping and fatally crushing some poor souls to death.

Ken, when you were still in Ipoh, did Anderson Road end right in front of the YMCA? Well, the road now runs pass the Y across the river and this Medan Istana is just half a km after the Y on the left. You can say it starts where Coronation Park ends.

Hi Ken,
Yes, thats Gunong Ceroh alright. The huge boulder collapsed 35 years ago. Scary huh? Well, Medan Istana is a new biz centre but many have shifted to the Greentown biz centre which is more a happening place. Maybe they should liven the place up with watering holes or billabongs instead. Regards.
