The location is within a naval base, thus I did not have the protocols nor permit to enter as a civilian and foreigner as well. This was informed to me by the security officers at their guard room.

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.
