Martha Christina Tiahahu Statue

Martha Christina Tiahahu (4 January 1800 – 2 January 1818) was a Moluccan freedom fighter and National Heroine of Indonesia.

Born to a military captain, Tiahahu was active in military matters from a young age. She joined the war led by Pattimura against the Dutch colonial government when she was 17, fighting in several battles. After being captured in October 1817, she was released on account of her age. She continued to fight, and was captured again. Sent to Java to be a slave laborer, she fell ill on the way and, refusing to eat or take medicine, died on a ship in the Banda Sea.

The Pattimura statue is placed in Karang Panjang village, around 10 minutes walking from hotel.
