Sasana Kijang

Realising Bank Negara Malaysia’s aspiration to establish a centre of excellence in knowledge and learning in central banking, we constructed Sasana Kijang. The word Sasana derived from Sanskrit that describes a gathering site for the community. The design of the building itself is inspired by the shape of the Cowrie shell, a popular form of money in the Malay Peninsula during the 3rd century with its building façade derived from the geometric patterns of traditional Malaysian songket motifs.
