It was just this sculpture there and some more when you walk towards garden. But there was nothing to give a special visit there. Better spend time somewhere else.

This monument isn't large as it only showcases the one statue as seen in the picture. There isn't a proper area that talks about the existing history and the reason why this monument was built

This type of monument is always sobering, it reminds us of the sacrifices others have made for the life we have today. It is a very nice memorial to all those who fought for Malaysia.

The monument is by the same sculptor that did the iconic US Marine Corps War Memorial (Iwo Jima Memorial) in Arlington County, Virginia. The Sculpture is found in the middle of a park. The setting and location is very pretty,

It's open to all publics. No fee required. Feel free to drop by. It will be better to visit via own transport as there's not really any easy access public transport here.

The monument itself takes 5-10 min. The area around it is nice to walk and close to the botanical, bird, and butterfly park. So that would take half a day.
