Sultan Abdul Building at Merdeka Square
The Dataran Merdeka (or Merdeka Square) is the old colonial heart of Kuala Lumpur. It was here, in front of the Sultan Abdul Samad Building that the Union Flag was lowered and the Malayan flag hoisted for the first time at midnight on August 31, 1957. Merdeka = Independence.
At Merdeka Square you find Royal Selangor Club, the National History Museum and the impressive Moorish-architecture Sultan Abdul Samad Building which is quite a sight a night when it is illuminated.
