What travelers say:

The National Heroes Memorial is to commemorate the war heroes who participated in World War I and World War II during the state of emergency in Malaysia from 1948 to 1960. The monument is close to Kuala Lumpur’s Lakeside Park, ASEAN Park, Parliament Building and National Mosque, and there are many attractions nearby. The monument is 15.4 meters high and is composed of 7 bronze statues. It represents 7 soldiers from the Malaysian Armed Forces. They hold the national flag and represent the 7 qualities of leadership, strength, prudence, courage, suffering, and sacrifice. The monument is located in the courtyard waterscape, which can be approached by following the paths in the garden. This is a breathtaking monument, built to commemorate the sacrifices made in resisting Malaysia in World War II. This evokes my memory of the Pacific War launched by Washington in the United States, which is equally impressive. It is worth visiting.
