“Lovely Late Colonial Architecture”

Jiswasraya Insurance Building
Reviewed August 15, 2012

If you love architecture, you should try Semarang. Really. The old town of this port city has recently been attracting names such as 'Little Netherlands' and 'Little Amsterdam'. While there is a degree of hyperbole in this, Semarang's old town is a delight for history lovers and we hope that the attention of culture vulture tourists well aid in its preservation.

Dating from WWI, this insurance office building is a delightful colonial structure. Located across the road from Semarang's famous Blenduk Church, it was designed by Herman Karsten, a notable colonial architect, and has survived in good condition for the best part of a century.
