It's a small unnoticed historical site for architecture and photography entusiast. It's no longer graveyard since all body remains were moved but the grave monuments & statues etc still original, combined with the old trees it could be quite something chilly.

Though the tombs are no longer in their original place, the tombstones are still well preserved. My friend actually found the tombstone of his ancestor, who once owned a land in Tanah Abang, during VOC time. Been visiting the museum for 3 times, and still...More

I went to the museum alone in the afternoon. It was public holiday so the museum is really quiet and peaceful. The ticket is very cheap. Only IDR 5000/ USD 0.37. If you love to capture the unique monuments, you will love this place. There...More

Here you could see the best quote from Soe Hok Gie and many lovely Dutch statues style in a dramatic pose. Good for photography hunting especially in black and white composition.

Not much to see here, the tombs are all withered, written mostly in dutch and no one there can tell you what this place is all about. You can take some good pictures here though, it has some calm and majestic atmosphere. Would be nice...More

Great location, just behind National Museum (walk about 200 meter). Perfect location for taking art photo, but you had to pay a lot of mount of money for taking prewed picture, commercial pict or art picture here. There were no more body inside the grave.

It is a beautiful place, very quiet and calm. Great spot for photography. It is like a hidden gem in the middle of the city. The entrance fee is also very cheap. Sadly, there is no brochure or guide book about the place.
