Worth visiting to spend 10 minutes to take photos and see the Monument, that is there to remember the fallen soldiers from WW2 and the Malayan Emergency. Across a busy main road from the Botanica Gardens. Not easy to access via public transport.

Visited in May 2017. I enjoyed my visit to the Tugu Negara (National Monument) and seeing both of the memorials. It's located in a nice, quiet park and is walking distance from the Perdana Botanical Gardens.

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.
