Mount Merapi, Gunung Merapi (literally Fire Mountain in Indonesian/Javanese), is an active stratovolcano located on the border between Central Java and Yogyakarta, Indonesia. It is the most active volcano in Indonesia and has erupted regularly since 1548. It is located approximately 28 kilometres (17 mi) north of Yogyakarta city, and thousands of people live on the flanks of the volcano, with villages as high as 1,700 metres (5,600 ft) above sea level
"Monument located at the intersection of Jalan Sudirman and Jalan Margo Utomo , has a symbolic value and is a magical line that connects the southern ocean , the palace of Yogyakarta and Mount Merapi." ( Sourced from Wikipedia )
