Dataran Merdeka

Hotels near Dataran Merdeka, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia .

One of the most well known places in Kuala Lumpur is the Dataran Merdeka or the Merdeka Square. The said square is located in front of the Sultan Abdul Samad Building, and is known for being the location where the Union Flag was lowered and was replaced by the Malayan flag for the first time, dated on August 31, 1957. Since that time, the Dataran Merdeka has been a place of importance, being the usual venue for the Hari Merdeka Parade that happens every year.

The Sultan Abdul Samad Building that is close to the Dataran Merdeka is one of the most significant landmarks that were constructed by the British. The landmark was completed in 1897, and has played a part during the time when the British ruled Malaysia.

Incidentally, the Dataran Merdeka has been featured on TV, most recently as the starting point of the reality TV show, The Amazing Race Asia 1.
