The position of West Kalimantan is astronomically crossed by latitude 00 so that the weather is very hot. Between March 21-23 and September 21-23 every year there is a unique natural phenomenon when the sun is right on the equator. At that time the position of the sun will be right above the head so that it removes all the shadow of objects on the surface of the earth. 


This event is called the culmination of the sun. On that day many tourists, both local and foreign tourists, came to witness the rare event in the Pontianak equator monument.
