The History of Malaysia begin from Merdeka Square or Dataran Merdeka. On 31st August 1957 as Malaya declared independence from the British rule. The Union Flag was lowered and the Malaysia flag hoisted on the 100m flag pole – among the tallest in the world. 

Merdeka Square is undoubtedly Kuala Lumpur’s best-known landmark. It is set in front of the Sultan Abdul Samad Building (the former State Secretariat). The venue for Malaysia’s annual Merdeka Parade (Independence Day) celebration, Merdeka Square hosts rock concerts. 

The city’s most famous historical colonial buildings line up the streets around the square–and many are open to visitors or make for beautiful photo backgrounds. The Sultan Abdul Samad Building, heavily influenced by Moorish style, houses the Ministry of Information, Communication, and Culture of Malaysia, while the nearby Kuala Lumpur City Gallery tells the story of the city through miniature models and innovative exhibits.
