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!
