    I usually didn't shot about Jakarta very much although I was on off in this city. But yesterday I went to the cemetery which near to my residence area. Taman Prasasti Museum or Museum of Memorial Stone Park is an open air museum was formerly a cemetery, built by the Dutch colonial government in 1795 as a final resting place for noble Dutchmen. Several important person that was buried in the cemetery area are Olivie Mariamne Raffles - the first wife of British governor general Thomas Stamford Raffles.

    The cemetery area is the oldest of its kind in Jakarta and may have been the oldest modern cemetery in the world by comparison with the Fort Canning Park (1926) in Singapore, Gore Hill Cemetery (1868) in Sydney, Père Lachaise (1803) in Paris, and Mount Auburn Cemetery (1831) in Cambridge, Massachusetts, USA.

    Thanks for the views, comments, faves...really appreciated ^_^
