    The fort is big but a bit dirty and need maintenance. The playing area and hotel around the fort don't fit with the fort. The fort is historical building, it should be preserved

    Old fort. Part of the historical years of Java War (1825-1830), one of the biggest war the Dutch have to fight in Nederland-Indie. Worth to visit, but they need more interesting way to tell the tale of the fort, especially for student visitor.

    Another historical place of Indonesia. It is an octagonal-shaped fortress which id built by the Dutch during Netherlands-Indie era. The fort was built with bricks up to the roof so it is so strong that they can put a railway around the edge of the roof (I don't know if it is built back then or later). Too bad the building is not well maintained, it is presented as empty as it is, no informative signs, displays or dioramas to explain about the historical moments of the fort it self. It is more of a recreational area nowadays with one mini train brings visitors go around seeing the scenery from the roof top, children playground, music stage, foodcourt, swimming pool etc.
