Soldier at the Top of the Jambi War Monument

Taman Tugu Juang (War Monument Park)

A famous landmark in the City of Jambi is the War Monument Park. It’s location can be found by clicking this link.

This monument consists of a pillar that has a soldier standing on the top. He’s holding a sharpened bamboo pole, and has a knife in his belt.  This monument is a reminder of the struggle the Jambi Province (and all Indonesia) had in their effort to be freed from the long Dutch colonization, and Japanese occupation.

Below is a video we made of this monument.
