The Non-Aligned Monument Georgetown

This monument surprised me ! It is located in the park in front of St. Georges cathedral.

Found this info on the net:
During the Conference of Foreign Ministers of Non-Aligned countries held in Guyana from August 8-11, 1972, a monument to the four founders of the Non-Aligned Movement (NAM):

  • President Nasser of Egypt
  • President Kwame Nkrumah of Ghana
  • Jawaharlal Nehru of India
  • President Tito of Yugoslavia

was erected in this garden and was unveiled by the then President, Arthur Chung.

National Library and Cenotaph

The Cenotaph is a memorial for the fallen in the World Wars. We didn't visit the National Library. The Guyana Stores is on the other side of this square.
The word 'cenotaph' means empty tomb. I first misspelled it 'cenetaph'. See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cenotaph for more information.

University of Guyana

The university grounds are very spacious and green.
See this link for the official site of the University of Guyana.

New Amsterdam, street view
