The statue is located at the edge of beach inside main naval base in surabaya. The statue is big facing to the sea. All boat that come to surabaya will be welcome by this statue. Under this statue is a museum. The statue it self was made from bronze by balines people.

You can see this beautiful statue if you take the passenger ferry from Madura to Surabaya. But as it is located within a naval complex if you want to see it up close, you are required to have a permit. Now that's where the problem started, there is no clear direction as to how and how much to get this... More

Back when this statue was built, it was perceived as a future tourist destination and icon of Surabaya tourism. Unfortunately, being located in the middle of active naval base, complete with its tight security and series of security checkpoints, it means that very little tourists could visit this place. Only those that have access to the inside of naval base... More
