All Along The Clocktower

On the 31st of August 1957, Tunku Abdul Rahman declared our nation’s independence in front of the backdrop of Dataran Merdeka, the Sultan Abdul Samad Building. Designated as a National Heritage site in 2007, the building holds a special place in Malaysian history. Originally housing New Government Offices, and then the higher courts for a period of time afterwards, the iconic building has served many roles, and has been around longer than our young nation has. For this special Merdeka episode of I Love KL, we delve deep into the significance of the building and its history.
