Dataran Merdeka - KL’s Most Iconic Padang

In this episode, we shine our spotlight on KL’s most iconic and recognisable field, Dataran Merdeka. Our resident heritage conservation expert, Elizabeth Cardosa recalls the field’s history, when it was once a vegetable garden, and the journey it went through to become what it is today, and what it stands for, for the people and for Kuala Lumpur.
