Erected in the 1930's to commemorate the fallen of the Latvian War of Independence (1918-1920), this large granite column features on top the Goddess Liberty bearing aloft three golden stars (originally representing the three historic divisions of Latvia but after the fall of the the Soviet regime nowadays reinterpreted as being the three Baltic States of Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia). For most of the year, two Guards mount half-hourly Honour patrols at its base.
An excellent memorial and worthy of viewing.
