Здание султана Абдул-Самада, «Бангунан-Султан-Абдул-Самад» (малайск. باڠونن سلطان عبدالصمد) — административное здание, расположенное на площади Мердека в Куала-Лумпуре, Малайзия. Возведённое в 1894—1897 годах архитектором А. Ч. Норманом, оно позднее было названо в честь султана Абдул-Самада, который правил Селангором в момент, когда началось строительство.
It's the most popular place in Malaysia. You could take a photo there and even buy a gift there. The place is importantly for the Merdeka Days on 31 August every years. In that day, you could see a parade and other stuff like a talented people there. Sometimes that place is used for some activities like concert, expo and other. That place is a historical place in Malaysia because there are a war between Malaysia and Japan. Then Malaysia agreed to live happily since that day. Now, Malaysia is in the most happy country in the world.
New underground square is now ready. It is fully air-conditioned, toilet and prayer room available. A lot of food stalls available too. Some convenience stores and souvenirs. Do not park on the road side to avoid summons by DBKL. Underground parking available but it's quite dark at certain area which is dangerous if you are a single lady driver. Parking rate at flat rate of RM5 (if im not mistaken 😁).
Awesome historic place. I visit there on 25-Dec-2017.. this is my 2ND visit over there... usually this place is too crowded during holiday and Sunday's... surprisingly, the road was closed due to construction work at square... not much people and we took photos just stand in middle of the road.. Old building still strong.. !!!
Place for history enthusiasts. Also have small field for playing around. Night time looks great as surrounding buildings lighten up. It is situated in front of the Sultan Abdul Samad Building, so can get good view of that great architecture also.
This place is historical place for Malaysia. As here for the first time Malaysian flag was hoisted and unian Jack was lowered. This place is symbol of freedom of Malaysia. Literally known as Independence square. There are many government offices are located in nearby area. This place was earlier used as cricket club and before that rugby club. There is stadium also. When I visited this place many events were going on there due to their upcoming new year. Events like street dancing, bicycle stunts, rapping competition etc.
Visited the Square as a part of the free guided walking tour arranged by the Kuala Lumpur Office of Tourism. Might just be the best free tour I've taken anywhere in the world. Hopefully if you take this tour you'll get Jasmin as your guide. She is Amazing and very passionate. Don't want to spill the beans about tour. Just trust me when I say you will be a bit smarter upon the conclusion.
Have a little walk to Merdeka Square for the buildings and field. It also have Dataran Underground that has shops and vendors that sell items, useful for tourists that wish to bring back some local misc. A great place to relax on the field. This place is also a strategic location for marathons throughout the year
Nothing interesting to see but I went there to take pictures of the area and the Malaysian flag. Beware because the building operator wanted to save cost so there won't be lights that light the whole building only some that light up parts of the building if you want a nice experience and if you love to walk and take pictures, the drain will have a nicer light and water show at somewhere between 7-9pm.
This landmark is super awesome. I love the architecture! Its really good place to take a picture with friends and family. Sadly, I want to kno the history behind it. But I dont know where I should to go. I mean I think this landmark is historical so people who come here better to know the history of it. If you have city tour in Kuala Lumpur, you have to go here. Near of station, and easy to find.
Was here cause it was the starting and finish line for a 10km Run. Nice backdrop to take pictures after the run. If you need to look for public toilet, can walk towards the back (NOT across main road ya) and you'll see a public toilet next to some sort of library. Forgot the name.
A good place where we can get to know about the Malaysian culture. A museum kind of place which displays the various famous places of Malaysia under a single roof. Entry fee is 5 ringets per person. We can see a lot of souvenirs in the shops at the exit of the place. There would be a auditorium kind of place in which we can get to know about the Malaysian history. Overall, it's a great place to visit 😊
Historical spot. But there is always a group of rowdy kids on bicycles on weekend mornings. Some even harassing the tourists with their rowdyness and lewd behaviour. Overall good spot to visit. Avoid night time at all costs. Filled with rempits and wannabe racers. Sad to see parents hanging and loitering around this area late at night with their infants. Malaysians need to learn to be better parents. Authorities need to curb these social ills.
I love the space it gives to people living in Kuala Lumpur. It seems too hot to be in during the day, but it's a nice place to lounge at night. Street vendors sell food and toys which help brings life at night.
Very nice historical place. Nearby it has kl city gallery famous amongst foreigners. Their are many things to visit around this place. It has many structures and monument in this place such as masjid, church and museum.
Very little here and the traffic signals don't ever change for pedestrians. Also under heavy construction in some areas. Just skip this square and go to the many other beautiful sights.
Right beside KL City Gallery. A perfect place for photo shootin'. You can find a few spot to pose or just sitting down. Too bad when i come here last year the weather was cloudy. But luckily we've got enuff time for a couple of shots.
A big open space to relax. Evenings are better to walk around and play in the park. There is a museum next to it. The flag point in interesting to watch. There are various other sculpture and architectural buildings nearby. There are lot of tourists visiting this place in the evening. Hop on hop off buses also ply to this place.
This is a historic place marking its relevance to independence day. Malaysia's independence from the British rule was declared from this place. To mark this every year independence day celebrations are organised here. Buildings in this stretch also carry the same importance since they stand unchanged unlike time and well maintained till date.
It is a historical place where Malaysia was declared independence on 31st August 1957. Here we can find many historical building and monuments. It is situated in front of Sultan Abdul Samad building and it is very near to City Centre and Central Market. It is a nice place to visit and also do shopping nearby this place.
Malaysia independent park, the tallest flag in KL n a tourist attraction. There are always visiting foreign traveling in the area, very hot in the afternoon. There is nothing much to see, only to take pictures and is very hard to cross the street too much traffic. The park is not well keep and dirty, it need more work to make more attractive to tourist. They just to have stores and info. Center underground but not anymore.
Little did I know, this place is open for public on weekends night. I mean you can walk freely without worrying about cars passing by. Quite nice for night walk.
