National Monument



"Dedicated to the heroic fighters in the cause of peace and freedom, may the blessing of Allah be upon them."

These words are engraved on the altar which the statue stood. Click here to look at how the statue look like, not a picture I'm proud of... Which is why today's picture won a place in the hall of fame instead. (Taken with Nikon F3 and Tamron lens at 200mm.)

Happy 49th Birthday Malaysia!

Heard an interesting story behind it as well, that the first version was kind of rejected because the faces look more like angmors cos the artist was an ang mor :P
