The actual monument itself is special but the large well maintained surrounding park and water features are also a main attraction, its a quiet solemn place so if you are tired of crowds its very relaxing. Its located within walking distance to other attractions and close to the city.

Good place for some photographs. Other than that, nothing to do nor any good place nearby to eat if you're hungry.

Impressive monument, but… the soldiers look like they are from Texas, rather than Kuala Lumpur! :) (It was built by the same American sculptor who built the Iwo Jima Memorial in the US, as the authorities at the time liked the Iwo Jima one.) Still, it is interesting to see for both reasons :)

The National Monument is a historical place for local. There is not much there except the monument. However, the place is very clean and tidy and there is a pool and fountains with it. There is a small garden nearby and you can take nice photo there.

Tugu Negara is situated in a magnificent landscape park between a vibrant city and cozy lakes with complex of interesting theme parks, historic monuments and nice playgrounds. Lots of tourists visit this place, unfortunately the restaurants are dirty and unhygienic!!! The public toilets and the toilets in those restaurants are filthy. They have very inviting names like the Tugu View... More

A monument to fallen soldiers in the different armed conflicts. Not very interesting unless you are a war buff.
