Just a landmark building to visit. Quite pretty at night with changing light colors. If passing by worth a stop, but I wouldn't go out of my way to visit it.

This is just a government building and we are not allowed in. Suppose to be a Dutch design. Too far to even for picture taking.

The only Landmark in Bandung which named after the food! This has been popular as icon in Bandung and the field in front of it is where the people of Bandung gather and enjoy to each other by healthy life style, community meeting or just family gathering.

This building looks grand from the outside, with the nicely maintained lawn and fountain sprouting, amid the busy and congested road in front of it. The building was said to be designed by Dutch architect J Gerber incorporating native Indonesian elements, and currently serves as the office of the governor of the province of West Java.

Another fascinating item was the library with so many old books. Especially the laws of... More

It is well maintained and the architecture of the building was very unique and beautiful. The building was gated and I was only able to see it from outside these gates. I later found... More
