If you love to take architecture photography then come, especially (once again) at night. In the day, this monument is just an ordinary big brick which you notice after visiting the Great mosque or waiting the night comes in the Ampera bridge

There is not much things you can enjoy in here. You can visit at the back of the monument the museum with collections of Indonesians history. The government should pay more attention to this monument.

Its a big block of bricks and cement. You go here to admire the architectural beauty of a brick building shaped into a monument to summon Ctulhu, and admire the boring beauty of the gray dull cement while musing what poor choices had you made going into this forsaken spot of tourism.

Monpera is located near the Ampera Bridge. From outside it looks like a tower, but actually it's a museum. Not many things that you can enjoy inside. The local goverment should develop this place more, fill it more objects/showcases, and maintenance it better.
