The National Monument Complex is located at Taman Tasik Perdana and officially opened for public at 8 February 1966. It houses both old and current National Monuments in a beautiful garden filled with flowers and fountains called Taman Peringatan (The Remembrance Garden). The current National Monument was proposed by Malaysia's first Prime Minister Tunku Abdul Rahman, who was inspired by the Marine Corps War Memorial during his visit to the United States in October 1960. He personally met Felix de Weldon to discuss about the monument development.
