Overview

Standing at one of Jakarta's busiest roundabouts near the Grand Hyatt, these two waving sculptures have been welcoming visitors since 1962. President Sukarno commissioned its erection initially to greet sportsmen and visitors traveling to Jakarta for the 1962 Asian Games. The monument and the fountain surrounding it appear particularly impressive in the evenings. Like the many other statues gracing the city's bustling intersections, it also symbolizes Sukarno's inspiration to develop Jakarta into a modern metropolis back when he was in power.
