This special Malaysia Day event is going to be extra meaningful as RIUH will be hosted in a 110-year-old building, with a history that dates back to 1905

Be one of the first to experience RIUH at the historical Sentul Depot for this weekend only, located at the heart of Sentul West!

Sentul Depot features stunning colonial-brickwork buildings and metal sheds, over the span of 200,000 square feet. The area was once primarily used as depots, engineering workshops, and storage areas for steam and diesel locomotives and railway cars! Owned by YTL Land & Development Bhd., this hidden gem will be open to the public for the first time in its 110-year history.

Set against the backdrop of Sentul Depot's gorgeous backdrop, RIUH is the perfect place to celebrate 55 years of the formation of Malaysia.
