It is a beautiful War Memorial. However, it is not a must-see, but it is included in most city tours., so it is easy to stop and give it a few minutes and take a few pictures. Maybe pay respect to the war heroes that have given their lives.

A nice and understated monument to honour all those who sacrificed their lives to defend Malaya since the World War I and until the British granted independence. Being an Indian, we came across the names of fellow Indians etched on the monument, making us both proud and sad.

The National Monument is the worlds tallest bronze sculpture - commemorating Malaysia's struggles for freedom during the wars. Great views of the city too.

An important monument concerning the history of Malaysia. Surely worth a visit when in KL. It's close to the botanical garden so you walk from one to the other. You will find some benches here and shade so you can have a rest and a look at the monument.

The whole area is impressive especially the layout but the figures of the men in the monument do not look Malay but appear American or Australian in their physiques. They do not look anatomicallycorrect.

Well worth a visit. In memory of those who gave their lives defending the Country. Can get quite busy as it is a major tourist attraction, but everybody seemed to respect the significance of the site. The architect responsible for the design was Felix de Weldon who was also responsible for the Iwo Jiwa memorial. Make time to walk round... More

It is a great reminder of Malaysia's past. Though not very exciting per se, It's good for taking pics. And it's close to other attractions as well.
