Yes it's now a park but it's still called Walled City Park. The Yamen is one of the few structures from the original KWC that has been preserved.

very interesting the way it was built. mind boggling...

"the said Municipality of George Town shall on the First Day of January in the Year of our Lord one thousand nine hundred and fifty seven and forever thereafter be a city and shall be called and styled the CITY OF GEORGE TOWN instead of the Municipality of George Town and shall thenceforth have all such rank, liberties, privileges and immunities as are incident to a city." - Queen Elizabeth II

OK, I started a thread about this, but it hardly got any replies so I'll ask here.

Is there anything today that even comes close to the level of KWC? What are the densest human settlements today?

^ I believe Mongkok in Kowloon (part of Hong Kong) is the most densely populated district in the world. However it's not like the Kowloon Walled City. It's not an illegal slum to start off with. The chawls of large Indian cities such as Bombay and Calcutta and the favelas of Rio de Janeiro are perhaps the closest equivalents of the Kowloon Walled City. They are extremely crowded but not multi-storied to the same extent as the Kowloon Walled City.
