we were visit Monpera again at night and found that night view are really nice.
we could see the "Garuda Indonesia" Statue changing its color because of the lighting.

So come there at 7pm and do not forget your camera. :)

There is not much things you can enjoy in here. You can visit at the back of the monument the museum with collections of Indonesians history. The government should pay more attention to this monument.

Its a big block of bricks and cement. You go here to admire the architectural beauty of a brick building shaped into a monument to summon Ctulhu, and admire the boring beauty of the gray dull cement while musing what poor choices had you made going into this forsaken spot of tourism. Appreciate your own decision as your girlfriend curse you for you eccentric choice of visit, and abandoning you instantly on this monument.

Monpera is located near the Ampera Bridge. From outside it looks like a tower, but actually it's a museum. Not many things that you can enjoy inside. The local goverment should develop this place more, fill it more objects/showcases, and maintenance it better.

Brutalism is not our favorite school of architecture. Come to think of it, is it anybody's? The school is defined by 'Wikipedia' as 'linear, fortress-like and blockish with a preponderance of concrete.' Every single word of that description applies to Monpera, a concrete monolith unleashed on Palembang in 1968 in celebration of Indonesian nationalism and the arrival of military rule.

The monument, consisting of several wedges of brutalist concrete is today part of the city's waterfront and heritage, but it also a monument to 33 years of military rule under General Suharto and hence a tribute to totalitarianism. The architecture is questionable, the museum within is full of yellowing paper clippings but the views from the top of the mighty Musi River are wonderful and almost excuse all the rest.
