This monument is situated not far from the main entrance of the zoo. It is surrounded by nice gardens and great to photograph. Deserves a 10 minute stop in your schedule.

Surabaya Monument is in front of Surabaya Zoo. Become one of the interesting places to take pictures with family and friends. This monument describes the city of Surabaya itself, where "Suro" means fish, and "boyo" means crocodile. A description of Suroboyo's courage and toughness.

Most first visitors may wonder how Surabaya city got its name. Though no one could miss sighting the crocodile and shark monument, the mystery of Surabaya will remain if one had not take time to stop-by and visit. Best time would be in the morning...More

The name Surabaya, from what I understand, means a fusion between a shark and a crocodile. This monument certainly shows that but for my taste, the city's monument is just too ugly.

It is a unique monument, marking the city. The battle between the crocodile and fish are then relived to name the city of Surabaya.

This monument is near Surabaya zoo...while buaya itself is crocodile in English. The place lies almost at city center..so its worth a visit.
