Embassy of Indonesia Installing Hindu Goddess Statue on Massachusetts Ave

Approval was granted yesterday for the Embassy of Indonesia to erect a statue of a Hindu goddess on public space next to the grounds of the Embassy. The statue of Saraswati, the Hindu goddess of knowledge, music, arts and science, was originally planned for the corner of Massachusetts Avenue and 21st Street (also adjacent to the Embassy) but moved at the request of DC government's Historic Preservation Office (HPO). The fence around the current location will be moved to make Sarawati more visible.
