Overview

J.G Strijdom Square was unveiled in 1972 by the widow of the late Prime Minister of South Africa. Built on the grounds of an old market place, it is home to a bronze bust of the Prime Minister Advocate J.G Stridjom, sculptured by Coert Steynberg. Nearby is a statuary group of charging horses above a fountain - a symbol of the republic striving for independence. Present South African President, Thabo Mbeki, held his inauguration dinner at the square last year.
