“Here is a place where a Malayan flag, during midnight on Aug 30, 1957, was hoisted for a initial time in a country’s story on gaining autonomy from a British rule.”
Dataran Merdeka (Independence Square) is reasonably named since it was during this place on Aug 30, 1957 during midnight, a Malayan dwindle was hoisted for a initial time in a country’s story on gaining autonomy from a British rule. The dwindle lifting rite was hold during a really mark where the 100-metre high flagpole now stands.
Underneath a flagpole area is Plaza Putra, an subterraneous food, convenience and party complex, as good as an subterraneous parking bay. On a other finish of a immaculately-turfed 8.2ha margin lies a fountain area with superb colonnades and charming rows of zinnias and marigolds, a good place to rest after a day’s trip.
