With the government of Bali’s capital city of Denpasar busily trying to upgrade and gentrify the Jalan Gajah Mada area near the central square and Bali Museum, attention has now turned to the four-faced Catur Muka Statue that marks “kilometer zero” for the entire island.
To give a face life, in fact four face lifts, to the Catur Muka Monument the government has allocated Rp. 1.5 billion (US$161,000) to be spent by the Denpasar Hygiene and Public Parks Department (DKP).
As reported by Radar Bali, the head of DKP for the City of Denpasar, Ketut Wisada, said the refurbishment of the Catur Muka Statue would be done in stages. A design of the revamped monument has been complete by a project consultant hired by the City.
“The physical work will begin at the end of this year with initially a redesign of the garden and the areas surrounding the monument,” explained Wisada on Thursday, August 9, 2012.
