The Welcome Monument or Selamat Detang Monument is one of the many monuments built by President Sukarno in 1962 for the Asian Games. Placed at the middle of a fountain, this monument shows figures of a boy and a girl waving their hands in a welcoming gesture while the girl carries a bouquet. Due to its prime location, it is now an important historical landmark.
The Welcome Monument was designed by Henk Ngantung and sculpted by Edhi Sunarso. The two figures are placed atop a pedestal and are 5 metres long. The entire monument is 30 metres above the ground. The spot of the Welcome Monument gets very busy on weekends when people come to relax or participate in various activities.
