Simpang Lima Gumul: Arc de Triomphe ala Kediri
We managed to visit the SGL (Simpang Lima Gumul), a monument at the eastern gate to Kediri city.
This was built like the famous Arc de Triomphe in Paris. ^^ Of course, it's completely different in style and grandeur. Though I've never been to the one in Paris, this one in Kediri is more like half-finished monument..
Well, it's relatively good in the sense that for the locals who yearn for something different...it's a good hang out place...^^ but...the final touch of this monument was not that smoothly executed.
Unfortunately that's what I felt....^^
But, of course, it didn't prevent us from enjoying the time we spent there.
The reliefs carved on each side of the monument tell about the history of Kediri..since its initial establishemt until the present day.
At least...we were there to be there for ourselves to see what's the fuzz about it.
Did we enjoy the trip? oh, yeah we did.
Arc de Triomphe ala Kediri...none other than Simpang Lima Gumul (SGL) Monument.
