Situated in one corner of Merdeka Square if in area okay but not worth making a special effort to see it.

The fountain itself is probably nothing to rave about, but the ambiance of that place is pretty nice. There is a museum and then the Sultan Abdus Samad building, so overall it is a place where one can take some nice pics. But the fountain itself, would recommend spending about 10 minutes there and then explore the surrounding landmarks.

This review is quite late. The Queen Victoria Fountain is located in Merdeka Drive which is busy thoroughfare in KL City. It is definitely difficult to miss.

I found this fountain very interesting not by the sheer looks and beauty, but the maintenance and more so by the strategic location it is situated in. Made the place look way more beautiful than it is in reality.

No doubt that the fountain itself is pretty enough. But not sure if its worth having this on the tripadvisor's list. Just give it a shot if you're close to Merdeka Square or Royal Selangor Club.

I always stop by the QV fountain when I find myself in the area, as it's a pretty, interesting little piece. Heavily-detailed, there's quite a bit that the architecture, design or history buff might find interesting and worth a visit. (There seems to be a QV fountain or monument in pretty much all major cities of the Commonwealth countries, doesn't... More

There is a little confusion in the reviews I was reading here. There are two Queen Victoria Fountains, one in Merdeka Square (not the KLCC fountain) and another in Malacca. The one in Merdeka square is near the big flag and smaller than the one in Malacca. Probably you are going to visit this iconic square and see the fountain.... More
