Day Trip to Kellie's Castle and Ipoh old town

I went to Kellie's Castle and Ipoh with a pal of mine and three new friends yesterday.

(From Wikipedia)

Kellie's Castle (sometimes also called Kellie's Folly) is located near Batu Gajah, and is about 20 minutes' drive from Ipoh, Perak, Malaysia. The unfinished, ruined mansion, was built by a Scottish planter named William Kellie Smith. According to differing accounts, it was either a gift for his wife or a home for his son. More here.

More about Kellie's Castle here.

All the images were shot with Canon 40D and Tamron 17-50 and Hoya Pro CPL
