Located in the centre of Palembang city, easy access to this place. Nowadays the monument already enhanced with additional MONPERA sign, and also the TANK that located in front of Pasar Cinde, allocated to this monument area. Unfortunately, nowadays we cannot access the rooftop of this monument, because it is closed to public 😅

As usual, the entrance fee for foreign visitors are way way more expensive compare to local. Due to this kind of discrimination, I just refuse to go in.

Located behind the Benteng Kuto Besak and Sultan Badaruddin Museum, Next to the Ampera Bridge and right infront of Mesjid Agung Palembang, it is a great place to take a few shot for your trip. No entrance fee... More

If you want to know about the Indonesia-Dutch Revolution, this is one of the best places. Otherwise, head here to get to the rooftop for a view of Palembang and the Ampera Bridge. It's a staircase climb all the way up and down, so no short skirts or those with weak knees. Located in the main town area and Rp.1000... More

A historical monument in the heart of Palembang. It might interests some history freaks, but not much interesting to see inside. It is recommended to go to the top of the monument and take some Jembatan Ampera picture from there.

A good place for us to study about history but beware with the pickpockets because there is no security around there.
