Equatorial Monuments Around the World

Note: Post revised on Nov. 5, 2014. Please see revision note at the end of this post.

The Equator is an imaginary line on the Earth's surface approximately equidistant from the North Pole and South Pole and it divides the Earth into two Hemisphere - Northern and a Southern Hemisphere. Although major portion of the Equator lies on ocean but it mainly crosses Indonesia, Sumatra, Central Africa and South America.

In few cities around the World, Equatorial Markers/Monuments have been erected to attract tourists. I have tried to locate such monuments and these are listed below in sequential order of movement of Sun from East to West. Maximum numbers of monuments (four) are located in Ecuador - a country whose name itself means Equator. However these monuments have some controversy regarding correct location on the true Equator.
  1. Pontianak, Indonesia
  2. Bonjol, Sumatra, Indonesia
  3. Nanyuki, Kenya
  4. Siriba, Kisumu-Busia Road, Kenya
  5. Nabusanke, Masala-Kampala Road, Uganda
  6. Kikorongo, Fort Portal - Mpondwe Road, Uganda
  7. Mbandaka, DR Congo - An historical marker made by the famous Sir Henry Morton Stanley of "Dr. Livingstone, I presume?" fame. (added Oct. 1, 2009)
  8. Near Kongo, Libreville-Lambaréné (N1) Road, Gabon (added Oct. 27, 2009)
  9. Islet of Rolas (Ilhéu das Rolas), Sao Tome and Principe Islands
  10. Macapá, Brazil
  11. Guachalá, Cayambe, Ecuador
  12. The "un-official" Mitad del Mundo (Middle of the Earth), San Antanio, Ecuador
  13. The "official" Mitad del Mundo (Middle of the Earth), San Antanio, Ecuador
  14. The old Equator Monument, Calacalí, Ecuador
Here is a Map showing the relative locations.

(Note: The monuments in Ecuador are so close that these cannot be individually identified on a map of this scale.)

I request my readers to let me know if I have missed out any marker/monument.

7. Mbandaka, DR Cono

Mbandaka town was founded in 1883 by Sir Henry Morton Stanley of "Dr.Livingstone, I presume?" fame who had given it the name of "Equateur". Stanley had placed a large "Equator Stone" near the river bank south of the city to mark the point where he believed the Equator to cross the river. It remains there even today. (Source: Wikipedia)

8. Near Kongo, Libreville-Lambaréné (N1) Road, Gabon

Image from Panoramio is by Yves Galipeau

Image from Panoramio is by bvoneche

The markers shown in these two images are basically same. The first one was the old marker made by Agro-Gabon, a Govt. owned company. It was privatised and taken over by Siat Gabon in 2004. The marker was therefore re-made and the new marker can be seen in the second image. However the locations of the two images in Panoramio are not matching. I have placed the GE placemarker based on the location marked by Yves Galipeau.

Credits: I am thankful to Yves Galipeau for informing me about this location and also about Agro-Gabon/Siat.

This monument in the shape of a giant sun-dial is in Guachalá, Cayambe, Ecuador. Reportedly this is the only monument in Ecuador built exactly on the equator line. It is part of Quitsato Project a non-profit project that destines its funds for the investigation of the equatorial line. More info at

12. The "un-official" Mitad del Mundo (Middle of the Earth), San Antanio, Ecuador

Unlike other places, there are two Equatorial monuments in San Antanio. This is the unofficial one and is closer to the Equator as compared to the official one which is about 200 meters South-West of this location (see #13 below). Intiñan Site Museum is also located at this spot. Although it has staked claim for being virtually on the equator this claim is disputed by others. (Ref:

View location in Google Earth Google Maps

It is worth noting that an ancient Inca archaeological site about 3 kilometres to East, (shown below) is located on the equator itself.

The Quitsato Project using WGS 84, which is reportedly the most exact and up to date global positioning system, discovered that the peak of Mount Catequilla archaeological site was located exactly at the zero latitude ( 0º 0' 0" ).

13. The "official" Mitad del Mundo (Middle of the Earth), San Antanio, Ecuador

Based on the tools available with them in 1930s, the French Academy of Sciences had decided the location of the Equator at this site. Accordingly in 1936, with the support of the French American Committee, Ecuadorean geographer Dr. Luis Tufiño built a 10-meter monument at this location.

In 1979, the old monument was moved 7 km to the west, to the town of Calacalí (see # 14) and a larger replica of the original monument was made at the site although it was and remains about 200 metres away from the Equator. This slightly mislocated monument is the official and touristy monument and is called "Mitad del Mundo" (Middle of the World).

Mitad del Mundo contains a small Museum of local culture and other attractions such as a Planetarium, an amazing miniature model of Quito, the capital of Ecuador, and restaurants. A small town surrounding the monument at the Museo Etnográfico functions as the tourist center, replicating a colonial Spanish town and is called "Ciudad Mitad del Mundo" (Middle of the World City).

14. The old Equator Monument, Calacalí, Ecuador

Image from Panoramio is by Zsolti a Béka

This monument was originally at San Antanio, about 7 kilometres to East, but in 1979 it was shifted to Calacalí, and is located near to, but not on the, true equator line. As per this website the Equatorial line is close to the Pileta de la Plaza de Cala Calí, about 180 metres North of the present location.

Its larger giant size replica has been built afresh on the original touristy site at San Antanio, (see # 12) and is called "Mitad del Mundo" (Middle of the World). Source of Info: Wikipedia

Oct 1, 2009
I am thankful to Wacope who, vide his comments dated June 15, 2009, had given some suggestions and had also pointed out few discrepancies in my original post about the monuments in Ecuador. Unfortunately I read these comments only now. This post has been revised based on his comments.

While revising I luckily found an equatorial marker in Mbandaka, DR Congo which was not included in my earlier post. This marker was created by none other than Sir Henry Morton Stanley of "Dr. Livingstone, I presume?" fame. I have now included this historical marker also in this collection.

Oct 27, 2009
I am thankful to Yves Galipeau for informing me about the marker on Libreville-Lambaréné (N1)Road, Gabon and also about Agro-Gabon/Siat. The present revision is based on the information given by Yves Galipeau.

I am thankful to Kelley MacTavish for pointing out a typographical error in my post. Based on his comments, the name for #5 - Nabasunke, Masala-Kampala Road, Uganda has been corrected to Nabusanke, Masala-Kampala Road, Uganda.

I own 7 globes of the world, have three (3) wallmaps of the world, own a Large atlas @ a small "pocket atlas" that Im constantly re reading all of the time. I love all these photos of "equator crossings". Incidentally, I myself have crossed the equator, but not at any of these sites in youre pictures that are posted. I crossed the equator in late 1983 or early 1984, in the Indian Ocean, onboard my ship the U.S.S. Fort Fischer, LSD=40.Quite an experience Ill tell you! Thanks for this great new site!, sincerely Randy T. Boe renton, Wa.

I have Crossed the Uganda Equator!!!

Uganda is one of the few countries in the world where the imaginary line that divides the earth into two half passes. The Equator or the Uganda equator crosses into Uganda at a point situated 72km south of Kampala along the Kampala – Masaka road.

At this point, there are two cement circles marking the equator line and it is worth stopping if you are traveling to Masaka or Kampala for a photo moment. Also watch a demonstration by local entrepreneur on how water swirls in opposite directions in the northern & southern hemispheres at the equator line.

Other equator markers are located in Kasese district within the Queen Elizabeth National Park, 420km southwest of Kampala

Another reason that make equator worthwhile stop are the great shopping bargains.

The point has got several craft shops and art galleries run by individuals and organizations.

These craft stalls sell souvenirs and handmade products while some with marks talking about the Equator. It will not be inconveniencing if you bought a T-shirt with words ‘I crossed the Uganda Equator’.
