The Bukit Jalil National Sports Complex (locally called Majlis Sukan Negara) is Malaysia’s largest sports and events venue, housing a number of stadiums, parks, and courts for different sports atop Bukit Jalil Hill in Kuala Lumpur. While it’s open to the public daily, operational hours depend on the event that are taking place at the venue’s many stadiums and sports centres.
The biggest stadium within this complex is the Bukit Jalil National Stadium, which accommodates up to 100,000 people at a time. Constructed in 1998, a standout feature here is the massive sculpture of a keris (traditional Malay dagger) at the stadium’s entrance which symbolises courage and heroism in Malay culture.
