We arrived at the monument a little short of time having taken over a hour to get to it from our hotel by taxi. On arriving at the entrance we were told at least an hour possibly 2 hours to wait to get elevator to top, spent an enjoyable hour going around the museum in the base admiring the diorama's depicting the history of Indonesia

Nice but avoid during day as it is very hot also getting there is tricky due to traffic also carry your own water and food if vegetarian

I really enjoy the view of the city from the top. I was lucky with no queue, just waiting 5 minutes to access to the lift

The weather was so hot and when I visited a national monument. There were an underground museum and tunnel, it was pretty cool to see, especially so many cute kids were visiting. Therefore, I did see whole jakarta from top of this construction. It was pretty nice. Also, you can rent a bike, hanging around square.
