About Travel to Kuala Lumpur

Kuala Lumpur is a modern city best known for its large shopping centres, tall buildings and modern efficient public transport system. However, Kuala Lumpur does have an historic city centre which is important in terms of the development of the modern independent state of Malaysia, and that is Merdeka Square.

History of Merdeka Square

‘Merdeka’ means ‘free’ in the Malay Langauge and this is the name given to the location where, at midnight on the 31st August 1957, the British Flag was lowered and the flag of the newly created Malaysian Federated States was raised to mark the end of British colonial rule. Every year a parade is held at Merdeka Square to commemorate the event. The choice of this part of Kuala Lumpur as the place to declare independence is highly significant as this was where the most important administration buildings of the British colonial government in the Malay peninsula where located.

Buildings to see in Merdeka Square

There are lots of large beautiful buildings designed and built by the British colonial government in and around Merdeka square in Kuala Lumpur that are worth visiting. Some of the building can only be seen from the outside, although some have been repurposed as museums and tourist attractions:

  • Sultan Abdul Samad Building: Constructed in 1984 to house the state government, the 137 metre long Sultan Abdul Samad Building is the most impressive of the buildings on Merdeka Square. The Sultan Abdul Samad Building was designed in the distinctive Indo-Saracenic architectural style which the British colonial government adopted for numerous public buildings across Asia. The Indo-Saracenic design style combines a number of architectural influences including Mughal building in Northern India and palaces in North Africa.
  • Selangor Club: The Selangor Club is the black and white European style building on the other side of the field from the Sultan Abdul Samad Building. The Selangor Club was a sports club for British residents and the large area of grass was, before indpendence, a cricket pitch.
  • Old High Court: The Old High Court, which is next to the Sultan Abdul Samad Building, is another magnificent Indo-Saracenic style building. The Old High Court, which was completed in 1915, is now used to house the Sessions and Magistrates Court of Kuala Lumpur.
  • National Textile Museum: The National Textile Museum is located on the corner of Merdeka and features a distinctive pattern of red and white brickwork. The building was copmpleted in 1905 and originally housed the headquarters of Federated Malay States Railways. The building was purposed in 2009 to house the National Rextile Museum which open to the public from 09:00 to 18:00 every day.
  • Jamek Mosque: The Jamek Mosque is located just behind the Sultan Abdul Samad Building. Although not on the square itself, it’s very close. The Jamek Mosque used to be the principal mosque in Kuala Lumpur and it’s arguably one of the most beautiful mosques in South East Asia. Interestingly, the Jamek Mosque was designed by a British architect which to some extent explains the uniqueness of it’s design.
