A monument to mark the line in which the equator passes through Indonesia, one of the 12 countries in the world. The equator has shifted since it was first built in 1928 and continues to shift so the original line may not be completely accurate anymore! There is a small museum where you can buy souvenirs and print a certificate to attest that you have straddled the northern and southern hemisphere.
