Visit Tugu Pahlawan to pay homage to the soldiers who fought in the Battle of Surabaya, the heaviest single battle of the Indonesian National Revolution. See the tall white column, arches, and statues, and visit the onsite museum to learn the history of the battle.

  • Got this great monument in the morning 6.30. it was nice to be here. I found that there are two new statues of country proclamators in the front gate, covering front pillars. Some locals excercise and jogging around centerfield. After 7, crowd start coming plus some student do their sport class at the field. Canteen is available behind museum exit, at east are, provides Nasi pecel and and soto. It's ok and cheap
