In this memorial park there are many statues of cupids and angels that seem to have come from various graves. There are also two exquisite marble sculptures of weeping ladies, one standing and the other lying over a tomb. Among the graves of the Europeans there are also tombs of Chinese, Japanese and Indonesians, including the tombstone of Miss Riboet... More

This outdoor museum is actually amazing. I believe it's the only outdoor museum Jakarta has–or maybe Indonesia has. I 'dig' so many histories about Jakarta 'written' on the tomb stones. Too bad, I couldn't find my self feel comfort in there. Too many mosquitoes biting me.

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 would be so thrilled to visit an old graveyard. Best to visit in the day as it may be eerie after sunset! Here lies... More

I knew that this cemetery was somewhere in Jakarta. Amazingly enough it is hardly visited by tourists. My guide told me that nobody ever asked her to go there in the more than 30 years she was a tour guide! I found it extremely interesting as it tells the story of Dutch people who lived and died in former Batavia.... More

The museum is located among busy district and I would not have guessed it. The museum area is actually a little left of once 5.9 hectare cemetery. Hundreds of old gravestone (dated back around 1700) placed on the grounds, some cemented into monuments, on the cemetery walls or on the building walls. Most of the remains have been removed to...

Many band/singers use this place for their video clip, whenever it has a funeral act part in it. It's good for you, photography lovers, but make sure you bring your hat/umbrella to cover your head from the sunlight. Do you guys know that Soe Hok Gie was buried here?

The first thing that is striking about Taman Prasasti is its silence. Tucked in a quiet corner of Jakarta next to the Central Jakarta mayor's office, the silence combined with tombstones of the capital's European and Chinese residents - as well as the obelisk like memorials to the area's original residents -make it the place to contemplate about the transitory...
