Rizal Monument

The Rizal Monument in Luneta, Manila, Philippines

 

Dr. Jose Rizal is the national hero of the Philippines and this monument houses his remains. The monument is guarded 24 hours a day, 365 days a year by honor guard sentries (you can see them if you look at the original size photo).

 

I don't know how those guards stand there for so long under the VERY hot tropical sun. I'd probably be a puddle of sweat in 10 minutes!
