    Surrounded by beautiful fountains, the National Monument (Tugu Negara) is the tallest free-standing group of bronze sculptures in the world and honours those who lost their lives for the country during wartime. The monument was sculpted by Felix de Weldon in 1966, who was also the creator of the famous Iwo Jima monument in Washington DC.

    Seven bronze human figures are on top of the oblong base, denoting qualities of those who sacrificed - courage, leadership, sacrifice, strength, suffering, unity and vigilance. The topmost figure in the middle holds the Malaysian flag and is flanked on by two other soldiers on each side, both armed.
