Cricket Field Turned Public Landmark in Malaysia
The symbol of Malaysia’s Independence as a nation’s heart is in Merdeka Square, Kuala Lumpur, which can be translated to English as ‘Independence Square’. The Malaysian flag was hoisted high in the square back in 1957, making it tradition that the annual Merdeka Parade would be held here for years to come.
Between the skyscrapers that have taken over the city in recent yeas, the Independence Square is considered the beating heart of the capital city. However, the square has since been gifted to Malaysia’s cricket team to be used as their home field. This is only open to the general public.
