Indonesia is a unitary state whose independence was achieved with full struggle. All the people at that time devoted all their energies to creating this beautiful country.
For some people, maybe they only know that the capital city of Indonesia is in Jakarta.
Whereas in the past the national capital was moved to Yogyakarta during a period of raids carried out by the Dutch with NICA & AFNEI troops after Indonesian independence.
This incident was immortalized by the construction of a monument in the Special Region of Yogyakarta, under the name monjali aka Monumen Jogja Kembali.
This monument is a sign that Yogyakarta, apart from being the capital of Indonesia, is also an outline of the defense of the government at that time.

This 31.8m high monument with 3 floors was erected on the idea of Colonel Sugiarto, who at that time served as mayor of Jogja in 83.
