Tunku Abdul Rahman Putra Memorial
Tunku Abdul Rahman Putra Memorial is a massive exhibition centre in Kuala Lumpur that commemorates the life and achievements of Malaysia’s first Prime Minister. Situated along Jalan Dato' Onn, the memorial is surrounded by a picturesque garden landscape with his official residence and two further blocks of buildings housing an extensive collection of his personal belongings and documents.
With a surface area of 120,000 square meters, the two exhibition buildings feature impressive exhibits of historical documents, news excerpts, mementoes, books, letters and publications by the late Prime Minister. Also part of Tunku Abdul Rahman Putra Memorial is the well-preserved official residence, which is over 100 years old and has hosted official functions and events, most memorably the deliberations for Malaysia’s independence. Tunku Abdul Rahman Putra Memorial was officially opened by Dr Mahathir Mohamad on 11 November 1994. This memorial was built for the memorial as well as to commemorate the charity service and contribution of Almarhum Tunku as the "Father of Independence" (Bapa Kemerdekaan) and as the first Prime Minister of Malaysia from 1957 to 1970. This memorial demonstrates the legacies left by Tunku, including documents, photos, souvenirs, news excerpts, clothes and furniture.
