Nelson Mandela Square is a shopping centre in Sandton, Johannesburg, South Africa. The square was formerly known as Sandton Square and was named for the former President of South Africa and anti-apartheid activist Nelson Mandela in March 2004. A six meter high statue of Mandela was unveiled at the ceremony to rename the square.[1][2] It is attached to the large Sandton City shopping centre.
