Monas have the flame of independence its symbolize spirit of Indonesian people. Its made from bronze and covered by gold its around 50kg. The standing pillar of Monas is 132m and symbolizing a rice pestle, and then the other part is the cup symbolizing a rice barn. Rice pestle and barn are traditional tools to pound rice, figuring out Indonesia as an agricultural country. They’re also regarded as the symbol of Indonesian people’s fertility, and as the symbol of male and female.
Jakarta people usually utilize Monas area as a place for sport activities, in the morning and afternoon time. Most people visit Monas on weekend and holidays.

Monas have 4 objects that we can visited :
1. the first is National History Museum, National History Museum located at the baseman of Monas.
At the four sides of the museum there are display windows that shows the life and phenomenon that Indonesian people has gone through since Indonesian ancient time.
2. Independence room, This room is located at the cup side of Monas and has an amphitheater shape, this place has 4 attributes, three of them are made by bronze and covered by gold.
In this room were kept the map of Indonesia, the red and white flag of Indonesia, the symbol of Indonesia, which is Garuda, and the replica of Indonesian independence proclaim script at the gateway. You could request the officer there to open the gateway so you could see the script replica while listening to the recorded voice of President Soekarno when he was reading the script.
