This is not a must visit, but if you do pass by it is worth a quick visit. It is very well made and it is one of the main monuments found in each main district in Madagascar. It is located along the main boulevard.

If you spend any time in Antsirabe, you will likely pass by this monument. It lists all the various social tribes found in Madagascar. Worthy of a picture and kind of interesting.

This only takes a minute to view but it has an interesting story behind it, so at least swing by and appreciate the Malagasy culture.

It was worth a stop to look at this stone showing all the tribes of Madagascar. It lies along the avenue leading from the train station so it is easy to find/see.

Located on the Grande Avenue, it is easy to see and photograph. The monument in itself is very nice, combined with a walk on the Grand Avenue and a visit to the Train Station make for an interesting visit.
