Monuments

  • Development Movement/"Gerak Pembangunan", Jl. Cut Mutia. This statue commemorated the start of 5 years development plan (PELITA) on April 1, 1969. This statue is often called "sack running".
  • Freedom of Irian Jaya/"Pembebasan Irian Jaya", Lapangan Banteng, near Hotel Borobudur and Ministry of Finance. This statue commemorated the freedom of Irian Jaya (West Papua) from Dutch occupation in 1963.
  • Farmer Statue/"Pak Tani dan Bu Tani", Jl. Prapatan Menteng. Created by Matvei Manizer and Otto Manizer (from Russia). This statue commemorated the struggle for Independence by Indonesian farmers and their family. Near Aryadutta Hotel.
  • General Soedirman, Jl. Jendral Sudirman. This statue commemorated the guerilla war against Dutch occupation led by General Soedirman in Jogyakarta (1948-1949).
  • Hermes, on Harmoni Bridge. This old statue is a lucky charm of Karl Stolz, a succesful Dutch businessman in Jakarta. He donated the statue to Dutch government in 1930.
  • Mahabharata Monument/"Arjuna Wijaya" is at the southwest corner of Medan Merdeka, in front of Indosat building. Created by Nyoman Nuarta.
Monas up close and personal
  • National Monument (Monumen Nasional, often abbreviated Monas), Lapangan Merdeka (BRT Monumen Nasional), Gambir; Tel.: (62)(21) 384 0451. A towering 137m-tall obelisk with 35 kilos of solid gold shaped into flames up top, this is the most famous landmark in Jakarta. The monument was commissioned by Sukarno in 1961 to celebrate Indonesia's independence, it was completed in 1975 after his death and is consequently known irreverently as Sukarno's Last Erection. The 1 sq.km. Medan Merdeka (Freedom Square) plaza/park around it was created by bulldozing a squatter community. Entry to the monument costs Rp 1100 (including Rp 100 "insurance"!), open 9 AM to 4 PM daily. Note that only the north entrance, via a poorly signposted pedestrian tunnel, is currently open.
    • An observation platform perched atop the monument offers stunning views of Jakarta and cool breezes on a hot day. Combined entry ticket Rp 5100.
    • National History Museum (Museum Sejarah Nasional). In the basement of Monas — look for the small staircases leading down from the outside — is a collection of dioramas depicting the struggle for Indonesian independence from a firmly revolutionary point of view. More amusing than educational, but entry is free with your Monas ticket.
  • Prince Diponegoro, Surapati Park, Jl. Diponegoro, Jakarta Pusat. This statue commemorated the rebellion against Dutch occupation (1825-1830), led by Prince Diponegoro from Kingdom of Mataram, Jogjakarta.
