“Pure Kitsch”
Reviewed September 21, 2011

Surabaya is an ancient city, with one mosque dating back half a millenium. It also has one of the most remarkable collections of colonial architecture in South East Asia, most of it completely neglected and time-worn. The historic buff will find much to entertain them in this overlooked city. It is nothing but a disgrace then that this ugly, kitschy monument set in front of the zoo for kids is more highly rated than dozens of historic gems. Honestly, turn left and right in front of this dubious statue and you will see half a dozen more architecturally impressive buildings.
