    The towering monument encapsulates the philosophy of Lingga and Yoni. Lingga resembles an alu rice pestle and Yoni resembles a lesung rice mortar, two important traditional Indonesian tools.

    A signature landmark in Jakarta that is not to be missed. Best to go in the evening for shutter bugs ad you get lesser glare.

    Went here at night to take photos of the night view. Nice place, very huge area so be prepared to walk a lot. But very disappointed with rubbish being thrown everywhere. So untidy.

    Monas, are sights that are not less interesting than the old city. Monas is also a legacy of the city tower in the Dutch colonial period.

    One of Indonesia's historic landmarks located at Central Jakarta (Makati version). The surroundings remind me of QC circle though. From the top view, it shows clear Jakarta skyline.

    In the basement, you can try and read the history of Indonesia. The English captions are very poorly translated, but you'll get the idea.
