Towering Independence

National Monument, Jakarta, Indonesia

National Monument, Jakarta, Indonesia

This beautiful night view postcard comes from Maya, who is obviously from Indonesia. The National Monument in Jakarta was completed after 14 years of building, in 1975. The monument was built in celebration of Indonesian independence from Dutch rule. The tower reaches a height of 132 meters. Tourists would be glad to know that the monument houses the National History Museum, the Hall of Independence and an observation deck with an amazing view of the city. Definitely a great postcard that May sent me, thank you so much!
