The Monument is a replacement of the former one by Wissmann from Germany. This bronze statue honors the soldiers who fought along side the British Carrier Troops. It is a must visit place.

It is a monument which honors the Askari Soldiers that fought in WWI and marks the exact center of downtown Dar es Salaam.

In the heart of business district however in a round about . Cars everywhere if you stumble across it while your walking pass is fine but wouldn't go out of the way to see . Better off spending time in museums

A popular landmark since the early 20th century, very close to all amenities. This sits in the middle of a roundabout which is landscaped with a lot of greenery. The best roundabout in Dar by far as the others are nothing to talk about.

Good location within a small park (in the roundabout). The statue of an African solder who fought with the British (I think). Unfortunately this very small park is not used by the locals. They look surprised when a visitor takes photographs.

Askari monument is a round about (or 'circle' as how they call it in India) with a statue of a soldier, located in the city centre / heart of Dar-es-salaam, nearer to New Africa Hotel. This statue tells a lot about the history of Tanzania....More
