We drove down to Monument Circle one evening and were surprised by its sheer size. The lights were on and we circled it a few times. Then we parked and walked around on foot. It isn't on the same tier as the St. Louis Arch, but it is a tremendous tribute and a nice way to spend an hour.

It is a beautiful monument. It has a nice fountain and you are able to walk around it. It was worth a visit but there were quite a few homeless people around it. They never bothered us but it take away from the beauty of the fountain.

We stayed near here and saw it every day and night of our visit. It’s pretty, it’s picturesque, cool and night and in the daylight, but it’s not really something to do, just something to see. Also, even in February there are people around that make the experience more uncomfortable m: people trying to sell you things on the sidewalks, people yelling about life and throwing things, etc. I think we could have gotten the same effect of seeing this monument having just driven around the circle, rather than walked.

Always enjoy visit the circle city and going downtown. It is best in the summer but it was a nice walk around the circle. Worth a stop.

We liked the monument on the circle and the art deco building next to it, but the (interior of) the church is the highlight here

Indiana does a nice job of recognizing its veterans. The circle is closed to vehicle traffic but still easy to walk around. Lights are strung from top to base of the obelisk and illuminated 24/7. especially nice at night

Such a pretty spot to check out the architecture. They were stringing the lights for Christmas this morning. Pretty cool to see.

We walked around the area. The monuments are very large and well done. The area seems to be in the middle of downtown but there didn't appear to be much activity in the area. There weren't many people around although we were there on a beautiful Wed afternoon.

It’s been awhile since we have seen the monument. We didn’t have time to stop but we were able to drive around it on a sunny day. It is an impressive monument to see. Hopefully we will be able to come back during the holidays when it’s really spectacular. You really need to see it decorated for the holidays.
