This is the landmark building where it used to be that on Malaysia August 31st Indenpence day, all the parades will march pass this historic Sultan Abdul Samad building. But now the Indenpence Celebration is rotated and held in different state capitals across the country.

At night, Dataran Merdeka become a fairy wonderland with the buildings all lighted up. There is now a giant flag pole with Malaysian flag flying high.

A must-see for all foreign tourist to KL is Merdeka Square. You can see also the Tudor style Selangor Club opposite.

Address: Downtown KL
