Yes, it was just a building. But, the history behind the building was started years ago, back in colonialism era. The building now has been well maintained and clean. Nothing special about the architecture, but hey, it's not just about that. It's Bandung's landmark!

It is just like any historical icon in a country. But we were not allowed to go into the grounds of the building so just had to see from outside the gates.

I suppose because its a government building, you won't be able to enter the grounds or park from the front as guards will (repeatedly) stop you. To do so, go to the side of the complex where the Postal Museum is located and where there is a lobby with an attendant who will either be sleeping or not paying much... More

I really disappointed when i knew that i couldn't enter the building even for the park where there are a lot of colorful flowers with bees flying between them. I knew it because i have ever been there before. But now everything has changed. No market anymore in front of this building, just only sport activities around this building area.... More

The complex that contains the Gedung Sate is also home to the West Java Provincial Government. Being said that, the security of this premise is little bit tighter than a normal tourist attraction that you would normally see in Bandung. The top of the building, as shown on the picture, has an observatory deck that you can get a good... More

People say that you have visit this place when you are in Bandung. This building is an icon of Bandung city. On Sunday, near this buidling, there is a market here. Unfortunately I came when the market was about to close so I only took some pictures here. So don't forget to visit "Gedung Sate" if you are in Bandung!
