I remember being greeted by the gloomy afternoon situation in Central Jakarta when I was having my day off that day, my mom and my auntie decided to take me to see national monument (Monas), actually it was my mom's idea because she really wanted to go there. So yeah, here’s a post of my kind of #SRSexplores local place.
This National Monument, mostly known as Monas, is a 132 m (433 ft) tower (that has a little national history museum inside) in the centre of Merdeka Square, Central Jakarta, built to commemorate the struggle for Indonesian independence days in 1945. We went there by using grab-car. The monument and the museum are open daily from 08.00 until 16.00 everyday.
Spotted the mini Monas.
It is topped by a flame covered with gold foil. The total height of the monument is 132 metres.
We decided to go to Monas viewing platform/observation deck, we paid IDR 45.000 for 3 people (adults). There is a lift on the southern side carries visitors to the viewing platform at a height of 115 metres above ground level. There is also a staircase for use in emergencies.
You can see the view of Central Jakarta from Monas viewing tower.
My mom totally enjoyed the view.
More visuals coming your way soon. Talk to you soon <3
