  • It was a bit of hike to reach the monument but we made it. I enjoy seeing historical places and this brought to life something I've only ever seen on telly.  more »
  • The monument itself is to appreciate, the sculptor did not know Malaysia therefore did it in "his image and likeness", does not represent the Asian.

  • Beautiful is a famous statue of the soldiers who fought in the revolutionary war, but around the fountain, or Golden Mosque buildings. High rise buildings there in front of the Hill. Is a place of unique space.

  • Tugu Negara was built to commemorate the fallen heroes of the country.
  • We proud..we respect and we love.. Oh malaysia ku..
  • Good place if you are intrested in botany. Bad place if you often have parking problems.this area is packed if you don't go early.
  • One the national monuments found around town. This one remembers the fallen heroes of the country. As you enter, you find yourself in a giant courtyard, with the aforementioned monument located at the centre, and finally opens up to a great view of the city and the nearby park. A definite must see, even for locals. Parking is limited, so best to park at the nearby park and make it up here by foot. The exercise will do you good.
  • Clean and nice place. Well maintained. Spectacular monument. Nice view.
