Merdeka Square

Merdeka Square

Unofficially known as Independence Square, it has become a place to celebrate national holidays and other more festive events.

In its close proximity, you will find the Textile Museum, the I Love KL statue, the City Gallery, St Mary's Cathedral and most importantly the Sultan Abdul Samad Building, which was formerly used for the administration of the British colony and is now home to several Malaysian ministries.
