Please come and see Gedung Sate as the icon of Bandung (West Java). This is the place that governor always held the reception for guests who come to Bandung. With unique symbol up on the building, it means that you will find this building so easy. Enjoy your day...

This majestic Dutch-built legacy showcases Javanese architecture using European execution. The big and beautiful lawns at the perimeter accentuate the imposing centerpiece, which is lighted up at night, adding charm to the still functional building which serves as the seat of power of the West Java Province.
