One of the main landmarks of Kuala Lumpur is the Sultan Abdul Samad Building, which might be said to be one of the most architectonically representative buildings in the city for photography. Currently it is the High Court of Malaysia. The style of the building mixes Moorish and English Colonial classical types, and strongly bears the stamp of its time period, and clearly exemplifies the historical sense of English colonization of Malaysia.
Malaysia Merdeka Square is situated across from the Sultan Abdul Samad Building, and occupies an approximate area of 8.2 hectares. It features an inviting green grass meadow, and has a lot of historical value, and is a place to visit when in Kuala Lumpur.
We strolled through downtown Kuala Lumpur, but it was extremely hot, so we found a cafe near the Sultan Abdul Samad Building that was quite good. I forget the name, but those who are interested can look for it, it was a cafe that had a very classic feel.
After a few days of heavy snow, it finally ushered in a sunny day. As soon as I got to the Independence Square, I went to the Independence Square in the morning. The Independence Square in the morning was quiet and busy, and the working people went to the subway in a hurry.
The Independence Square in the sun is different in beauty, and the statue shines golden in the sunlight.
In the afternoon, the Independence Square is completely different from the morning. It has become lively, shopping, street performers have appeared, and people feel the excitement of the city.
Independence Square, the Malaysian flag flutters in the wind on the 100-meter-high flagpole. It is said to be the tallest flagpole in the world. There is an oblate black stone on the grass in the square, which is vividly engraved on: August 30, 1957. The British flag was lowered at midnight and the Malaysian flag was raised for the first time. There are European-style buildings around the square, which is a historical testimony of Malaysia's escape from colonial rule. Opposite the square is the Sultan Abdul Rah Mansion, a distinctive Islamic-style building designed by British architects, built between 1894 and 1897. It used to be the administrative center of the British colonial government. The entire building is full of beautiful Victorian and Moorish architecture. Currently serving as the venue for the Supreme Court of Malaysia and the High Court.

Dataran Merdeka (Independence Square) is one of Kuala Lumpur's historically and politcally significant landmarks. This is where the Malaysian flag was first raised to symbolize independence from British Rule. Currently, a very tall flagpole stands at the southern end of the square. Portraits of the present prime minister and past prime ministers of Malaysia sit beneath the flagpole. The buildings encircling Merdeka Square are rich and diverse in style and architecture. They include everything from British Tudor-style buildings to Islamic architecture, guildhouses, and distant skyscrapers. Each of these buildings tells part of the story of Malaysia's colonial history.
