For architecture junkie like me, nothing beats the beauty and splendor of this eclectic Indo-European building. Viewed from any angle, this building spells WOW! If you are lucky, you can even climb up the tower in the middle, and have a bird-eye view of Bandung's best part. You can only believe the grandeur of this building when you see it! This single building had never ceased to put a smile on my face whenever I see it. And I am very lucky to see it everyday on my way to campus!

The area of Gedung Sate is clean and fenced. People can only see the garden surrounding this building from outside. Don't come to this area on Sunday, because it turns out as big traditional market. Full of people and sellers.

It's an old building. That's it. Can't have any more inspiration from it.
