Merdeka Square

One glance around Merdeka Square will show off the jigsaw of Kuala Lumpur’s central district, awash with towering modern skyscrapers and traditional colonial architecture alike. Waving palm fronds, arches, and a wide, open sky make for scenic photographic opportunities. This was the site of the first hoisting of the Malaysian flag, which echoes the significance of its name all the more, as it stands for ‘freedom’ or ‘independence’. The area surrounding Merdeka Square is strewn with important buildings, including consulates, galleries, and various headquarters, churches, and government ministries.

  • Marvel at the Moorish-inspired architecture of the Sultan Abdul Samad Building government building in Merdeka Square, which becomes beautifully illuminated at night and is the site of many official celebrations and parades.
  • Take an immersive tour of the Kuala Lumpur Gallery, which showcases the cultural heritage and historical development of the city of Kuala Lumpur, as well as magnificent models of future development plans.
  • Explore the vast collection of literature and archives at the popular Kuala Lumpur Library, which is also home to a Virtual Reality Centre full of educational material on anatomy and marine life.

Merdeka Square is centrally located within the Malaysian city of Kuala Lumpur. You can ride the U11 bus to the Bank Agro, Lebuh Pasar Besar bus station, which drops you off just down the street from Merdeka Square. To the north of the square, this same bus (U11) can drop you off across the bridge at Dataran Merdeka, Jalan Raja bus station, which is likewise a very short walk. Of course, you could always hire a taxi to take you to the site, as everyone in here knows where it is.
