If tourists are able to pay attention when visiting the tourist area of ​​the Yogyakarta Palace, of course, an imaginary straight line will appear when looking to the north.

Here, tourists can see the Jl. Malioboro, Jl.Mangkubumi and Tugu Jogja which connect to Jl. Jogja Monument Returns and head towards Mount Merapi.

The imaginary straight line connected between the Kraton, Tugu and Merapi can be seen clearly.

This Tugu area also has an image as Manunggaling Kawula Gusti which means the spirit of unity inspired by the Sultan to fight the invaders who came to Indonesia and Jogja.

This spirit of unity can of course be seen from the shape of the pillars of the monument building which has the shape of a cylinder or cylinder.

While in this peak area it has a round shape or Javanese golong which makes this Tugu Jogja in ancient times known as Tugu Golong Gilig.

This monument also has the meaning that when the Sultan of Yogyakarta was about to meditate, he gave an upward direction to face the top of Mount Merapi in the north of Jogja.

At first, this Yogyakarta monument was not the shape that tourists often see today.

Previously, this monument had a cylindrical pole shape with a conical shape. Meanwhile, in the lower area or in the base area itself, there is a fence encircling the monument.

Meanwhile, the peak area has a round shape. This monument used to be about 25 meters high.

The change in shape of the monument occurred after June 10, 1867. This was due to an earthquake that was very powerful and large and shook the city of Yogyakarta.

And in 1889 the Dutch at that time took the initiative to rebuild the collapsed Tugu Jogja. However, the shape is different from the initial form.

The Dutch government which ruled in Jogja built the Tugu Jogja with a square shape which added inscription decorations on each side of the monument.

And this inscription has writings and information about who was involved in the reconstruction of this Jogja monument.

Meanwhile, in the top area of ​​this monument, it is also not free from changes. In this new development the peak area is conical or pointed which replaces the round shape.

Of course it gives a much different form. At first glance similar to the National Monument. In addition, the height is also changed.

If previously it was 25 meters high, now it has been changed to 15 meters or 10 meters much lower than the original Jogja monument. After officially finished, this monument was given a name De Witt Paal or named Tugu Pal Putih.

It turns out that there is a special purpose why the Dutch changed the shape and design of this Tugu Jogja.

The change in the shape of this monument became one of the tactics of the Dutch government to erode the unity of the people and also the king in Jogjakarta in order to face the Dutch colonialists.

However, these plans and tactics did not go according to the expectations of the Dutch government.

This is because the resistance from the people of Yogyakarta is getting higher and tighter. This made the Netherlands a little overwhelmed by this.

Usually tourists will be directed to park in the Bank Mandiri parking area which is located to the east of the Tugu Jogja intersection.

Or it could be in the Abu Bakar Ali public parking area which is adjacent to Tugu Station. But have to walk from this parking lot.
