I just wonder why these two monuments look alike.
Washington Monument was built in 1848 in Washington DC, the capital of USA. The monument was built to commemorate George Washington, one of the founding fathers of the States. It is 169 meters height and made of marble, granite, and sandstone.
Tugu Pahlawan (Heroes Monument) was built in 1952 in Surabaya, Indonesia. The monument was built to commemorate the battle of the tenth of November in 1945. It is 41 meters height.
