"Top of the Monument" Top 5 Page for this destination Monument Circle Tip by grkboiler

Monument Circle, Indianapolis: 30 reviews and 41 photos

by grkboiler

The top of the Soldiers' and Sailors' Monument has a large bronze statue representing Victory. It stands 38 ft. tall and is also known as Miss Indiana. The designer was George W. Brewster.

The eagle atop her head stands for freedom, while the torch in her left hand is the "light of civilization". The sword in her right hand resting upon a globe represents victory that is due to the army. She faces south, supposedly overlooking the defeated battlefields of the South.

In the picture, you can also see part of the glass observation deck.

Address: Monument Circle, Meridian Street & Market Street
