TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - A new statue of Indonesian water buffalo (Banteng Wulung) at the Indonesian Stock Exchange (IDX or BEI) building does not only serve as a new icon of Indonesian stock market, but will also serve as a new icon of Jakarta tourism.

BEI president director Tito Sulistio said that the seven ton statue is expected to be a new tourism site in Jakarta in the field of finance.

Tito explained that tourists could visit IDX or BEI and take a selfie in front of the statue made of 2.5 million years-old fossil wood.

“This is also part of culture and it is expected to serve as another icon of Jakarta tourism,” Tito Sulistio said on Sunday (13/8).
