The seven bronze human figures, atop an oblong base; each figure denoting one of seven qualities: courage, leadership, sacrifice, strength, suffering, unity and vigilance.

The topmost figure, at the centre, holds aloft the Malaysian flag. He is flanked on the left and right by two other soldiers, both armed; the figure on the left is armed with a machinegun, while the other carries a rifle and a bayonet.

Beside the National Monument are the ASEAN Gardens and the Memorial Tun Razak which, houses memorabilia of Malaysia's second Prime Minister, the late Tun Abdul Razak Hussein.

Key Tips
It is best to visit when it is cool as there isn't shelter at the Monument. Also, it would be a good idea to combine a visit to this monument with a trip to the Lake Gardens right next door.

How to get there
By Taxi
The National Monument, right next to Lake Gardens and is right off Jalan Parlimen.
