Like average tourist spot managed by local gov't, shouldn't expect to too much from it. I traveled there with my cousin & friend and we were disappointed to find out that they were running out of certificate. They said they were reprinting it but didn't know when they would have it ready.
The inside of the monument filled with photographs dated from before the independence day. Pretty much informative to know the history of the monument itself. They also sell a miniature of the monument that's surprisingly not too expensive.
However, the surrounding area was too barren, with no big tree that let us have a nice oxygen and a very harsh sun glares that we need to squint our eyes when taking photographs outside.
I personally thought that the vacant ground by the river should be turned into a garden with big trees & flowers, not just letting the wild grass overgrown there which made it looks shabby.
