“Very old cemetery in central Jakarta”

Taman Prasasti Museum
Ranked #71 of 288 things to do in Jakarta
Attraction details
Reviewed December 2, 2011

A friend told me about an American consul who was buried here, and I had to find out more. Sure enough, Pliny M. Nickerson rests eternally in Taman Prasasti, as do other expat dignitaries who died in Jakarta (earlier known as Batavia) over one hundred years ago. Admission is perhaps the equivalent to $1 and allows you to stroll around the cemetery and learn more about the city's expat history by reading the gravestones, some of which, like Mr. Nickerson's, are in beautiful condition.

Well, this place is not a graveyard anymore. It used to be, but now all the bodies had been removed and only the tomb left. As it was used back from the Dutch era, you can find artistic and ornate tomb in the park. Some famous people's tombs that you can find including Sir Stamford Raffles' wife and Soe Hok Gie, young Indonesian activists. There is also a building which house many things related to funeral and graveyard such as the coffin of Indonesia's first president and vice president. A great place to unwind from hectic Jakarta. But mind you not to do anything stupid, the place are sacret and still guarded by the spirits.
