  • The Museum's name is translated from the Indonesian as "Park", and in fact is the old Dutch cemetery. Open Tuesday to Sunday from 9.00 to 15.00 entrance 5000 rupees (around 25 USD) per adult. People a little bit, maybe even will be alone. The last burial was in 1975, and in 1977, was opened as a museum. Of course, there are buried not only the Dutch but also English, Germans, Austrians ... Certainly not the Père Lachaise Cemetery in Paris, but too quiet corner of Europe ". Place soothing and serene. Many statues. Probably, this is the largest agglomeration of the statues in Indonesia (Borobudur aside). There are also two stones with inscriptions in Sanskrit of medieval Indonesia before the arrival of Islam (referred to as "Batu tulis"). But, it seems to me that this is a copy of the stones-somehow they suspiciously well looked ... And the majority of gravestones seemed too fresh-very good all inscriptions read trite and modern typeface. Of significant personalities-Olivia-first wife of Stamford Raffles, who died in 1814 г. The Raffles, who founded Singapore, in whose honor the named Flower rafflesia. Her headstone is left at the fence on a hill in a couple of steps, no statues, no.

  • Prasasti Museum is a couple of minutes walk from Citi M Hotel. Entrance fee is $5000. You will have the whole place to yourself as this graveyard is hardly visited by tourists. I don't think people wo...  read more »
  • You can find a lot of old tombstones here..from the tombstones of the first wife of Raffles,the British governor for Batavia, to Soe Hok Gie, a revolutionary figure in 1960s. This is also a good spot to do a photoshot.Although, there's some spot which they used to burn garbages. Such a shame.
  • This is an old graveyard, built during Dutch colonization. Why on earth people want to see old graveyards? Isn't it a bit spooky? Well, Indonesian always attract to spooky stories. Plus, for those who like photography, this is also the best sites for you to practice. You can see the statues sort of alive, their eyes watching you intensly. However, some of the statues were vandalized which is a pity actually.
  • This is an interesting place to visit. Many old tombs there. You can see the grave of Raffles' wife. It is the right place for photography lovers. The place is in the central of Jakarta. Very recommended for tourist.
  • Great clementery monument in this city. Sometimes there is photograpy event here.
  • Well, it's okay for the park... But for the ex cemetery (with all of tombstones, statues & all other kind of that stuff), I don't get the sacred feeling as I entered the location. Maybe because the surroundings aren't really support this park museum.
