Monas – Jakarta’s National Monument
Visit Indonesia’s iconic National Monument (Monas) in the heart of Jakarta. This striking 132 meter tower can be found in the center of Merdeka Square, standing as a proud symbol of the struggle for Indonesian independence.
Towering above the rest of the city, the striking column is topped by a gold-plated flame to symbolize the spirit of the Indonesian people that can never be extinguished. The long pillar symbolizes a rice pestle, while the large cup-shaped base represents a rice barn – two traditional tools used to pound rice that are reminiscent of Indonesia’s proud agricultural heritage.
Visiting Monas Jakarta
There are several ways to enjoy the National Monument. At the base of the tower, visitors will find the National History Museum, relaying the life and culture of the Indonesian people throughout the ages. Alternatively, brave travelers can venture up to the Top Yard, which offers an incredible vantage point over the Jakarta skyline.
