“If you don’t know history, then you don’t know anything. You are a leaf that doesn’t know it is part of a tree. ”
― Michael Crichton
The Queen Victoria Fountain is brought in from England and assembled in Kuala Lumpur and is one of the few thoroughly English designs around the Merdeka square. Constructed in 1897 out of 100% imported parts from England, the fountain features a series of lions and dragons that serve as symbols of the Empire ruled over by the Queen, arranged around an octagonal tower that supports a pinnacle from where water issues into the basin below.
