Equator Monument, Pontianak

2.6
Stand with one foot in the Northern Hemisphere and the other in the Southern at Equator Monument. The small monument consists of four poles topped with an arrow and three consecutive rings, pointing along the equator. This structure stands in place of an earlier monument, a simple pole and arrow put there by an unknown Dutch explorer in 1928. Because the planet has shifted on its axis slightly, the monument no longer sits exactly on the equator--a line right next to the monument shows its true position.

  • If you are obliged to stop by here the location is strategic, with its large parking lot, the Kenudian down the park and appears to the right of Tugu the equator with its building. If you are taking pictures in the colors of the floor, entering our building will be welcomed by the officers, will be given a certificate. There we can try to put an egg on the floor and keep it standing, which is impossible elsewhere. When hungry and thirsty many food places and for ANAK2 there is a recreation place too.
