I (being a foreigner) got a certificate, signed by the Mayor, no less, to say that I had crossed the equator. You can take pictures, with one foot in the northern and one in the southern hemispheres and outside you can walk to a smaller version of the monument, in a mini park.

Its a must place to go when you are in Pontianak. Lots of souvenir to buy and it's cheap. You are basically standing on the equator of the world!

Fairly unspectacular equator monument. Nothing to do here except to take a photo to show that you've stood on the equator. There is some construction work going on which could mean that they're building some restos or souvenir shops.
