Tugu Yogya is the most popular landmark of Yogyakarta. This monument is located right in the center of the crossroad between the Mangkubumi, Soedirman, A.M. Sangaji and Diponegoro roads.
Aside from being a symbol of the city of Yogyakarta , this monument also has an imaginary axis between the South Sea , Yogyakarta Kraton and Mount Merapi
Tugu Yogya is more spectacular at night when lit up.
Yogyakarta is known as the city of education, and it's become a tradition or ritual for students to kiss the pole or take a photo with it after graduation.
The Monument is located in the centre of a very busy intersection - so be careful of the traffic!!
