This is the Headquarters where the Governor office of West Java is situated. It is a sprawling area with a few blocks made in Dutch architecture. A must visit when in Bandung!

This building and its pleasant garden aren't must sees but okay if you have time. On Saturday morning we were invited to dance as traditional musicians played.

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
