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. Want to spend a couple of days in this beautiful city? Follow this Kuala Lumpur itinerary 2 days.
