Additional Information

Introduction

The Berlin Minaret is a monument to Dublin, the capital of Ireland. It is also known as the Monument to Light. It replaced the Nelson Memorial Column that was blown up by the 1966 Irish Republican Army and was completed in 2003. The Dublin Minaret symbolizes the renaissance of O'Connor Street and is designed by renowned British architects. The design philosophy is "a bridge between art and technology with elegance and energy and simplicity." The entire spire is hundreds of meters high. Looking in the distance, the light and shadow are reflected on the stainless steel tower, full of the power and beauty of the Nazi.
