Dataran Merdeka, also known as Merdeka Square, is without a doubt KL's most well-known landmark. It is located in front of the Sultan Abdul Samad Building and is also known as Dataran Merdeka (the former State Secretariat). This is the historical site where the Union Flag was lowered and the Malayan flag was lifted for the first time on August 31, 1957, at the stroke of midnight. Merdeka Square has been the site of the annual Merdeka Parade since then.
