Set in the Merdeka Square of KL, Sultan Abdul Samad Building was built in 1897, in early Moorish-style architecture. Constructed entirely in brick, the historic landmark was named after the ruling sultan in that era, and was once home to the Ministry of Information, Communications, and Culture. It continues to remain a major tourist attraction for the gothic and western influences that are visible in the design style. The 41m high clock tower is what people admire the most at this point. Kuala Lumpur’s Merdeka Square is a giant field with dense green lawns and the Malaysian Flag hoisted high right in the centre. The Merdeka Square was once famous for being the Selangor Club cricket pitch and went on to become the venue for the annual Merdeka Parade.
