The National Monument was constructed in 1966 to commemorate who died in the struggle against communist insurgency in the 1950's. This 15.54m high bronze sculpture depicts seven soldiers engaged in battle, symbolizing the seven qualities of leadership. There are five principal components that comprise the memorial site: from left, the cenotaph; a crescent-shaped pavilion; a long rectangular reflecting pool with fountain; the monument itself; and the ancillary gardens. The monument is situated at the centre of the reflecting pool.
