Kuala Lumpur : National Monument

National Monument

As you travel along Jalan Parlimen and towards the Lake Gardens, close to Parliment House stands the National Monument or Tugu Negara.

It is a great bronze sculpture erected to commemorate the soldiers who gave up their lives in the triumph during World War II and the Emergency (1948-60).

It was designed by the famous sculptor, Felix de Weldon, who also designed the Iwo Jima Memorial in Washington. The 15.54 metre high bronze monument depicts seven soldiers symbolising the seven qualities of leadership.

Kuala Lumpur : National Monument

The seven men from the Malaysian Armed Forces holding the national flag, each symbolising one of seven qualities: leadership, unity, strength, vigilance, suffering, courage and sacrifice.

It is one of the largest freestanding sculptures in the world. In honour of the nation's heroes, the "last post" is sounded every Saturday from 6.00 p.m.to 6.10 p.m. (except on public holidays).

Beside the National Monument are the ASEAN Gardens and the Memorial Tun Razak, which houses memorabilia of Malaysia's second Prime Minister, the late Tun Abdul Razak Hussein.

Asean Sculpture Garden
Waterscape and landscape combined harmoniously in this garden located just below the National Monument. It looks like one of the favourite spot of Malaysian to get away from the busy centre.

There are many completely different sculptures in the park. It has a collection of prize-winning sculptures by some of the finest artists in the ASEAN region. It is nice to explore the area and relax under the sunny sky!
