One of Malaysia’s most historic landmarks, Dataran Merdeka (Merdeka Square) has a special place in the country’s history. Situated in front of the iconic Sultan Abdul Samad Building, it was here where the independence of Malaysia from the British was announced on Aug 31, 1957. Since then, Dataran Merdeka has been a popular venue for the annual Merdeka Parade (National Day Parade) and various celebrations, most notably KL's New Year's Eve celebration. You can’t miss the huge 100 metre flag pole flying the Jalur Gemilang, the tallest freestanding pole in the world.
