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.
