Originally built as a defensive fort, the fortress still looks down over the rivers below and is operated by the military. While you can't access the fortress itself, you can walk the length of its high white walls and enjoy the vantage point of the famous Ampera Bridge nearby.

  • Kuto Besak Fortress (BKB) was in addition to the Ampera bridge. Next to it lies the Tugo Belido. Best time here actually fit in the afternoon when the Sun is not shining too. Kuto Besak fortress is building Kesultan Palembang in the 18th century built upon the proposal of the Sultan Mahmud Badaruddin I.

  • Kuto Besak fortress is a fortress which has tremendous historical value. If the value of history it can be delivered with ease and packed with good stuff, of course will add value to the surrounding communities. I wish this Kuto Besak fortress can be used as an icon of the city of Palembang and equipped with a Museum or a place to enjoy the value of history in it, of course it will be incredible.

  • Kuto besak fortress. Kuto besak fortress is a fortress, the palace buildings originally belonged to the function of the Sultanate of palembang. An interesting fortress so tourist destination. But unlike the fortress in bengkulu, Macassar, Malacca or Penang, that the castle belongs to the invaders. In palembang, on the contrary. Kuto besak fortress was built in the 18th century became the Centre of the Sultanate of Palembang. The idea of setting up initiated by Sultan Mahmud Badaruddin I and the execution of the construction was completed by his successor Sultan Mahmud II Bahauddin. This Fort was built in the year 1780, officially assigned in February 1797. Dear tourist, surrounds the inner part of the Castle, such as melaka, kuching, Macassar etc haven't been able to do. The Fort was still enabled so the hospital. Outer kuto besak fortress tour, okay.
