The same man who sculpted the famous Iwo Jima monument in Washington sculpted this gigantic bronze monument. It was Felix de Wheldon, who, in 1966, made for Malaysia this symbol representing the sacrifices made in the name of freedom and peace. The seven human figures on top each denote one particular noble attribute - courage, leadership, sacrifice, strength, suffering, unity and vigilance. It’s also meant to commemorate the struggle between the Commonwealth Armed Forces and the communist forces of the Malayan National Liberation Army.
You don’t immediately see the monument on arrival. A wide stairway will first lead you up the hill, where a smaller monument describes relevant history and information. Only after that do you visit the actual monument.

National Monument, Kuala Lumpur Reviews - Write a Review
Visited Tugu Negara when I was a small kid. Many years later, visited her again with my kids. Time flies, people is aging, yet this place is still awesome as before. Do bring your kids here to teach them that the harmony we are enjoying today, is built from these people who were willing to give up their lives. Real hero for Malaysia!
I wish people knew and are aware that they can sleep in peace today because many hundreds gave their life protecting for our peaceful sleep. In gratitude to all such brave soldiers. Let's us build peace and discard war. Alas they will never know that they are honoured only by paying price of their life
beautiful place.we will never forget our soldiers sacrifices in order to protect our country and our people!
A historical monument to remember those who have sacrificed their lives for the freedom of the country. The government should upkeep the place better as it is rather run down and it is a popular tourist destination.
Appreciate all those who fought n defended us so that we live in peace. No words can fully express my gratitude. My prayers are always for them and their loved ones
