At the corner of Jalan Tuanku Abdul Rahman and Jalan Raja Laut, Merdeka Square is made up of a padang (field) that was once the Selangor Club cricket pitch. 

Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL), which aims to promote night tourism, especially in this part of the city where the public can admire the artistically lit Sultan Abdul Samad Building flanked by the view of the Kuala Lumpur Tower.
