  • The location is not far from the fort marlborough. Its unique shape and reputedly built to commemorate the struggle of Thomas Parr ... former officials of the United Kingdom in the Bengkulu people were killed at the time of the reply. May just take pictures at this place for 5 or 10 minutes. Less information.

  • It is unfortunate this monument does not have information anything so surely missed and only seen when the journey to Fort Marlborough. Unfortunately the building is not well maintained.

  • Historic. Good for you who want to take vintage photoshoot.
  • Nice building
  • This is bengCooLen 😅
  • This octagon-shaped monument is worth a visit because of the historic value. The monument was established in 1808 as a reminder of the death of an assassinated British governor in Bencoolen, Thomas Parr, and today it still stands strong. The monument is composed of three arched doorways, a doom and six Corinthian columns in reference to ancient Rome and Greece. It is located at the meeting point of Jl. Ahmad Yani and Jl. Mazairi, very close from the Fort Marlborough. No entrance fee. I greatly appreciate efforts made by the authorities for paying proper attention and saving this monument from ruining away.
  • Nice view.
