Malaysian National Monument

This is a photo of the Malaysian National Monument that was built as a symbol of loyalty, sacrifice, and unity of the country’s citizens. The monument was built in honour of the soldiers and people who had fought for the country’s freedom during the World War II. This monument is surrounded by a pool of beautiful water fountains.

The monument was constructed in 1966, with 15 meters in height and it is made of bronze; it was designed by an Austrian scuptor, named Felix de Weldon.

Every July 31, the Yang di-Pertuan Agong, Prime minister and heads of the country’s military and police will pay their respect to the brave heroes by displaying beautiful garlands at the monuments.
