Merdeka Square is one of the famous attractions in Malaysia. The buildings around it also added the spice of the attraction since they were made amazingly. According to our guide, it is the best known landmark in Malaysia, and I just could not agree more because of the structures surrounding it. I must say that it is indeed a place you need to visit in Malaysia.
Opposite the Independence Square in Kuala Lumpur, there is a Sultan Abdul Samad Building. Although the name is gargle, the iconic clock tower is very recognizable. The architectural design has a special symmetrical beauty, the Moorish-style building, with a bronze shimmering dome that looks very much like a castle in a fairy tale. This magnificent and unique building was built in 1897 and was once the headquarters of the British colonial government. It is said to be called the "Big Ben" of Kuala Lumpur. Next to the Independence Square is the old administrative center of Kuala Lumpur. The two-story building is magnificent, and even if it has weathered, it looks very new.
After a few days of heavy snow, it finally ushered in a sunny day. As soon as I got to the Independence Square, I went to the Independence Square in the morning. The Independence Square in the morning was quiet and busy, and the working people went to the subway in a hurry.
The Independence Square in the sun is different in beauty, and the statue shines golden in the sunlight.
In the afternoon, the Independence Square is completely different from the morning. It has become lively, shopping, street performers have appeared, and people feel the excitement of the city.
Independence Square, the Malaysian flag flutters in the wind on the 100-meter-high flagpole. It is said to be the tallest flagpole in the world. There is an oblate black stone on the grass in the square, which is vividly engraved on: August 30, 1957. The British flag was lowered at midnight and the Malaysian flag was raised for the first time. There are European-style buildings around the square, which is a historical testimony of Malaysia's escape from colonial rule. Opposite the square is the Sultan Abdul Rah Mansion, a distinctive Islamic-style building designed by British architects, built between 1894 and 1897. It used to be the administrative center of the British colonial government. The entire building is full of beautiful Victorian and Moorish architecture. Currently serving as the venue for the Supreme Court of Malaysia and the High Court.
Dataran Merdeka (Independence Square) is one of Kuala Lumpur's historically and politcally significant landmarks. This is where the Malaysian flag was first raised to symbolize independence from British Rule. Currently, a very tall flagpole stands at the southern end of the square. Portraits of the present prime minister and past prime ministers of Malaysia sit beneath the flagpole. The buildings encircling Merdeka Square are rich and diverse in style and architecture. They include everything from British Tudor-style buildings to Islamic architecture, guildhouses, and distant skyscrapers. Each of these buildings tells part of the story of Malaysia's colonial history.
