Catur Muka Statue is the depiction of God Brahma, the Almighty Creator. Located at the crossroad, this huge granite statue has four heads which each of them faces and guards the street of Surapati, Udayana, Veteran, and Gajah Mada.

God Brahma is depicted as a four faced deity based on the legend that once upon a time there was a beauty contest held in heaven. All Gods, including Brahma, fought for the most advantageous spot from where they can view the contest best. All the nymphs who joined the beauty contest were required to parade in a circle around the Gods to show their best heavenly beauty. The contestants were countless that the parade soon became a huge and crowded circle. In order to be able to enjoy the beauty of all contestants over and over again, with his supernatural power, he transformed himself and had three more heads.

It is also said that the four heads represent God’s power. The first head signifies the fact that God is infinitely big. The second head signifies that God is the King of the kings of this world and the next. The third head signifies the fact that God is tireless and never stops working.
