Merdeka Square (Indonesian: Medan Merdeka or Lapangan Merdeka) is a large square located in the center of Jakarta, Indonesia. Merdeka is the Indonesian word for freedom or independence. Measuring approximately one square kilometer in area, if the surrounding fields within the Merdeka Square are included, it is considered one of the largest squares in the world. At 75 hectares, it is over five times the size of Tiananmen Square, and 12 times the size of Place de la Concorde.
At its center stands the National Monument, often called Monas (Monumen Nasional). The paved plaza surrounds the monument often host national events such as military and float parades, as well as civic demonstrations. Surrounding the Monument is now a park with a musical fountain in western side, and a deer enclosure where deer roam among the shady trees in the southeast corner. The square is a popular destination for Jakartans for sports and recreation especially on weekends.

A night public attraction for free in Jakarta! Fountain show with lighting & songs which takes about 20-30 mins.

Went there on Sunday during car-free day. Huge park, open space, quite well-maintained, don't know the condition of the toilets, though. F&B are centralized in specific area. If it rains, be prepared to get wet because there are no shelter.

It's good place to visit at night because the fountain show is great. The show is divided into some sessions with different dancing fountain and songs. It's very cowded, especially on weekend.

Combination of fountain and beautiful lighting with Indonesian traditional music rearranged by Addie MS. There are not so many movement variation so it's pretty boring after 10 minutes. Available during weekend night.

A nice attraction in the National Monument complex. The dancing fountain sometimes doesn't match the music, though.

As the name stated Monas dancing fountain is a fountain that is program to work/dance following the song played. Scheduled to play only on week-end, 2 session on Saturday and Sunday. First session start from 19.30, second session on 20.30. Every session last for 30 minutes, songs played is Indonesian national songs, compose by Addie MS.
