KUALA Lumpur’s iconic Dataran Merdeka and the century-old Sultan Abdul Samad building have the potential to be under the Unesco World Heritage List.

Dataran Merdeka or Merdeka Square, as it is often referred to in tourist brochures, is the historic field where the Union Jack was lowered and the Malayan flag hoisted for the first time at midnight on Aug 31, 1957.
