Sky Watch: around the National Monument

The National Monument or Monas is a 132 meters tower in the center of Merdeka Square, Central Jakarta, Indonesia. The viewing platform or observation deck located at the height of 115 meters above ground level. To reach this top platform, visitors may use a lift on the southern side. The capacity of the lift is only 11 people (data source:wikipedia).

During my last visit with my family, I wasn’t able to reach the observation deck since the ticket locket has already been closed. At that time, I saw many people were standing in line. I heard that most visitors have to wait for their turns for more than an hour.  The old elevator is in renovation now, hope the ‘new’ lift works better.

I saw some kids were playing kites around this monument. We had gray sky that day. Sky Watch Friday
