Inside the Voortrekker Monument

Inside the monument are marble panels with scenes carved. The picture above is the departure of the Voortrekkers from the Cape.

The Cenotaph.

"Ons vir jou Suid Afrika" We for thee, South Africa
(taken from the South African song "Die Stem van Suid Afrika")

Each year at 12 o'clock on 16 December there is a ray of sunlight falls on the inscription.
