If you spend any time in Antsirabe, you will likely pass by this monument. It lists all the various social tribes found in Madagascar. Worthy of a picture and kind of interesting.

It was worth a stop to look at this stone showing all the tribes of Madagascar. It lies along the avenue leading from the train station so it is easy to find/see.

I saw this monument while on a walking tour to central Antsirabe. It is at the cross roads. I highly recommend stopping by to see.

This monument gives an overview of the different tribes in Madagascar, the square around this monument is worth strolling around, espacially on a Sunday when everybody comes out with their children to enjoy a peaceful afternoon

A great monument in the middle of town by the Independence Avenue in Antsirabe - facing the old railway station and the post office. All the big events of the city happen here in this area. The good hotels are also surrounding this place.
