One Nation in One Mo(nu)ment

 

National Monument of Indonesia

It has reliefs that tell a story about the Nation before modern era.

It has Dioramas about prehisoric Indonesia

about ancient Kingdoms era

about European colonization

about uprising against Dutch East Indian Company

about Japanese ocupation

and all about Indonesian Independence Movement

It has The Hall of Independence too

where the original text of the Proclamation of Independence

where the National Emblem of Indonesia

and original Flag of Indonesia

have stored in it

Oh, and a 50 kilograms of gold on the top of the monument, indicate 50 years of Independence Day of Indonesia although it’s 71 in 2016

Eternal flame-like, symbolize Indonesia people’s struggle the independence
