Overview

Gracing the southwestern corner of the Freedom Square, this is an eye-catching statue that no visitor should miss. It depicts Arjuna Wijaya, the charismatic archer of the Five Pandava Indian legend, with a bow and arrow, riding a chariot of six galloping horses - a scene supposedly taken from Bharata Yuda War when Arjuna defeated Karna. The monument holds great significance for the locals, with some believing that the very figure opens a door to the spiritual world.
