Visited here at nite time and it was closed alredy..... Surrounded by old buildings, this area is said to be flooded when big rain.... If the local government make up this place, this could be a great historic place.

One of the very few restored buildings in kota lama, worth a visit! It is often closed and there is a service on sunday, but the guy told me that at 9 in the morning it is open.
