At this time, the Bukit Siguntang Buddha Statue can be seen in the courtyard of the Sultan Mahmud Badarudin II Museum which is in the Kuto Besak Fort Area.

Her hair is described as small curls covering the entire head and at the top center there is a kind of round and small bun (usnisa).

The clothes worn were a kind of long striped robe. The dress covers both shoulders.

Regarding the dating, seen from the depiction of the statues, the overall appearance of the statues is in the style of the statues from the Amarawati artistic period.

Based on this art style, it is possible that the Buddha statue from Siguntang Hill dates from the 6th-7th century AD. (*)
