Monas

Monas
a short form of Monumen Nasional

image hosted on flickr


The Monumen Nasional (or Tugu Monas, the National Monument tower) is a 137m tall tower in Central Jakarta, symbolizing the fight for Indonesia's Independence.

Visitors can take a lift up to a platform with a good view on Medan Merdeka Park, Istiqlal Mosque and the city (if it's not too foggy); inside the base of the monument is an exhibition of the declaration of independence and several dioramas showing the history of Indonesia.

History

the empty space that looks like X is now where the Monas stand

Its construction began in 1961 under Sukarno and not finished until 1975 under Suharto. It's topped by a 14.5 tonnes of flame-shaped bronze plated in 35kg of gold.

Map

The X site is where Monas now stand

A Bellagio Hotel-style fountain just installed in Monas this year

Many events took place at Monas Park (also known as Istana Park) such as:

Celebrating Jakarta Anniversary

Indonesia Independence Day

and so on........

Is it true that during Soeharto's time, no building can be built taller than Monas?
