Boiling Mud

Tanguban Perahu volcano is still an active volcano.  You could see boiling mud and so theoretically it could erupt anytime.

Christ Church

In 1641, the Dutch captured Malacca from the Portuguese. The Portuguese ruled Malacca for 130 years from 1511–1641.

To commemorate the capture of Malacca from the Portugal, the Dutch started building this church in 1741 and completed it at 1753. read more

This building is now a government office of West Java and if you want to translate the words Gedung Sate into English, it simply means Satay Building. read more
