The monument is topped with a flaming crown coated with 32 kilograms of gold leaf. A museum is open to visitors in the base of the obelisk, and you can also head to the top (via lift) to see view of Jakarta.

Taman Mini Indonesia Indah (TMII)
The country of Indonesia occupies more than 18,000 islands, and many travelers never get a chance to see all there is to see. That is, of course, unless they visit TMII (the literal translation is Beautiful Indonesia Miniature Park), which features re-created buildings and scenery from each Indonesian province. Be sure to ride the cable car, which passes over a lagoon whose islands are shaped like the Indonesia archipelago. Also worth visiting: the Keong Emas IMAX cinema and the Theatre of My Homeland.
