This monument represents the next generation who with full confidence and sincerity are ready to hit the waves and take the storm in the direction described as the ideals of the Indonesian people.
Thus, the Monument Jalesveva Jayamahe signifying the baton of the preceding generation completing tasks to the next generation.
The monument, which was built at the western end of the Madura Pier, has a function as a guide light tower (lighthouse) for ships sailing around it.
The statue of a fighter which has a height of 31 meters stands on top of a 29 meter high building.
On several walls of the building made dioramas of the history of the heroism of maritime warriors (TNl AL) from the pre-physical revolution to the 90s. This building is also as “Executive Meeting Room“.
This monument also fits the navy logo Jalesveva Jayamahe which has a meaning, in the sea we are victorious.
This monument was erected in 1993 by the Chief of Staff of the Indonesian Maritime Navy and then followed by Admiral TNI Muhamad Arifin which was designed by I Nyoman Nuarta.
Apart from being a monument, this building is also used as a lighthouse for ships in the surrounding sea (source: https://id.wikipedia.org/wiki/Monumen_Jalesveva_Jayamahe).

Its construction has been in progress since 1990 and inaugurated in December 1996, which coincides with the anniversary of the Indonesian Navy (formerly Armada TNI AL) on December 5, 1996 by the second President of Indonesia, Soeharto.
The technique for making an officer statue requires more than 3,000 tons of copper material, so it is not surprising that the sculpture cost up to Rp 27 billion at that time.
The construction of the monument, which costs a lot of money, is obtained from the self-help of the Indonesian Navy.
And financial assistance comes from the people who voluntarily either in the form of sponsorship from companies or other parties who are interested in making monuments Jalesveva Jayamahe.
The background of the founding of this monument is because of the idea that how a nation progresses should be consistent with being based on history.
In another sense, “a great nation is a nation that can appreciate the services of its heroes”.
Of the many heroes and elders who have been instrumental in pioneering, upholding and filling the independence of the Republic of Indonesia, including the Heroes who served through the Indonesian Navy.
They cannot count the struggles they have donated to this nation. They even give their souls.
Only a few of them are known to us, some of the heroes of which have been immortalized as the names of the Republic of Indonesia warships and important buildings.
Except as an indication of appreciation and mementos from future generations who are still alive.
It is also desirable to be able to give encouragement to continue their sacrifices towards the achievement of the aspirations of a victorious Navy within the framework of a just and prosperous Republic of Indonesia.
But future generations still feel that they are lacking in repaying their services and giving respect to them, and believe that no amount and respect is equal to their struggle.
Even though the Heroes do not want any reward but are desired to continue their ambition and motivation through | via | passing through the sacrifice of filling independence.
In 1945 the Independence of the Republic of Indonesia was proclaimed, the independence of this beloved country is 45 years old.
The sacrificial baton has completely transferred to the filler generation and the successor of development. Karen is 1990, can be considered as a spear in the history of the sacrifice of the Nation.
For this reason, the next generation of the Indonesian Navy, together with other communities, hope to present something special, in the form of the construction of a monument whose groundbreaking was done on December 5, 1990.
With the construction of this monument, future generations have tried to record the heroic input of the founders and elders of the Indonesian Navy in their pioneering, upholding and filling independence through the Navy.
And all of them can kindle the motivation to sacrifice to fill independence for future generations at this or the next.
Without forgetting historical moments that occurred in Sibolga, Tegal, Pasuruan, Bali or anywhere in this Indonesian homeland.
As a component of the Surabaya City of Heroes which cannot be separated from the history of the Indonesian Navy, there was a moment to seize Kaigun SE 21/24 Butai on October 3, 1945.
Which is symbolized by the oath by the Naval Penatarani (PAL), namely “I am willing & sincere to sacrifice my soul, property or property for Nusa & the Nation”.
In the performance of the next TNI AL historical moments, Ujung plays a really important role, namely the Home Base (Main Base) of the largest Indonesian Navy warships to date.
