National Monument

Located near the famous Lake Gardens in Kuala Lumpur, the National Monument (Tugu Negara) commemorates those who lost their lives in the fight for Malaysia’s independence. Built in 1964 to replace a cenotaph originally erected by the colonial British government, the bronze monument stands 50 feet (15.5 meters) tall and depicts seven soldiers, each representing a different quality of leadership, with one carrying the Malaysian flag. The original statue now stands behind the newer piece.

American architect Felix de Weldon, the same man who designed the Marine Corps War Memorial in Washington, D.C., also designed the Malaysia National Monument. Besides serving as a testament to Malaysia’s history, the National Monument itself made history by being the world’s tallest freestanding bronze sculpture grouping.

Practical Info

The National Monument is within walking distance from Lake Gardens. The site is accessible via the metro; visitors should get off at the Old Railway Station and then walk for about 10 minutes to Lake Gardens before finding the monument at the north entrance. Alternatively, a taxi ride from the city center to the monument will cost about 20 RM.
