Originally a district police station-cum-jailhouse (Rumah Pasung) on the ground floor and a courtroom on the upper floor, this building functioned as such until the state government administration centre relocated from Jugra to Klang in 1882. It remained as a jailhouse up to 1890 when the Pudu Prison was built.

On an area measuring about 20,000 square feet including its compound, this building is located at the foot of Jugra Hill near Sungai Langat. The building was constructed in 1878 by Captain Harry Charles Syers, a British police officer.

The team rediscovered the original structure of the building that was buried over time. Restoration and conservation efforts were then made in 2006, based on these discoveries. In the process, some of these pillars had been left unplastered to show the materials that were used in the old days.
