Banjul's Arch 22
"The major attraction in Banjul is Arch 22, which is the most impressive building in The Gambia. The Arch was built to commemorate the 22 July 1994 military coup d'etat. Standing high at 35m it affords spectacular views over the city and coastal areas."
Arch 22 is a commemorative arch on the road into Banjul in The Gambia. It was built in 1996 to mark the military coup d'etat which over threw the democratically elected government, and saw the rise to power on 22 July 1994 of President Yahya Jammeh and his Armed Forces Provisional Ruling Council. The arch stands on the Banjul-Serrekunda Highway near to the traffic island which intersects with Box Bar Road, Independence Drive and Marina Parade.
