I don't go in the monument as the que was huge, but I did enjoy relaxing in the gardens surrounding it. Worth a visit.

It was really great to film this monument with my Mavic Pro. Lovely structure. You may see my footage and photos on my instagram account @khantastik Jakarta is huge. If you happen to go to this monument doubt miss out the National Museum.

Nice garden but way too crowded. Just another monument. There’s a Market next door selling cheap stuff for household. Couldn’t find souvenirs here so we moved on.

How can you not help notice this beautiful monument specially when seen in the evening with all the colorful lighting . The monument is strategically located near some government offices as well as a stones throw away from my hotel .

If you wait for the little transportation bus they have when you enter; it will take you directly to where you have to enter. Great place to go to see and read about Indonesian history and it's struggle for independence.
