What exactly is a monument?

As defined by www.dictionary.com, it is:

Monument (mny-mnt) - 1) A structure, such as a building or sculpture, erected as a memorial. 2) An inscribed marker placed at a grave; a tombstone. 3) Something venerated for its enduring historic significance or association with a notable past person or thing. 4) An object, such as a post or stone, fixed in the ground so as to mark a boundary or position.

I saw many different monuments on my trip. From a volcano, to a cave, to a war memorial, to a desert theater. I must admit, I had experienced a good stretching of the definition of monument. But, it was all good, all monuments were interesting and each had unique a character all its own.

Here is my list of favorite monuments.
