Fodor's Expert Review Tugu Muda

Semarang Memorial/Monument/Tomb

The rocket-shaped Youth Monument stands in stone as a memorial to those who fought off the Japanese during a five-day siege in October 1945. Just beyond is the elegant but desperately dilapidated Lawang Sewu (Building of 1,000 Doors), built for the Dutch Indies Rail Company in the 19th century, that served as Japanese headquarters during World War II.
