I like this. Some additional input:

Most monuments in South Africa are also registered as Heritage Sites by the
South African Heritage Resources Agency

Photos and categories on Commons should add the following template,
{{South African Heritage Site|1=xxxx}} where is the SAHRA id for the monument.

SAHRA maintains a searchable database at
