The aim of this study is to investigate the energy-momentum distributions of texture and monopole topological defects metrics in general relativity (GR). For this aim Einstein, Bergmann-Thomson, Landau-Lifshitz (LL), Moller and Papapetrou energy-momentum densities have been used in general relativity theory. We obtained that (i) for the texture metric only Einstein and Bergmann-Thomson energy densities give the same results but the others energy and momentum densities do not provide the same results in GR; (ii) for the monopole metric, while Einstein, Bergmann-Thomson and Papapetrou energy and momentum densities are giving the same energy-momentum results, Moller and Landau-Lifshitz densities do not give the same energy results with the other definitions in GR.
