  • One of Indonesia’s Most Important Museums: National Museum

    Tasa Nugraza Barley
    13 Oct 2014 | 5:26 am
    by Tasa Nugraza Barley There’s an old saying in Indonesia that a big nation is one that appreciates its history. Through history, people can learn about their cultural origins and their national identity. However, museums — the traditional storehouses of items from the past that help people understand the developments that shaped their society — are not very popular here. Most Indonesians seem to prefer to spend their weekends and other leisure time at the many shopping malls that are scattered across Jakarta. Overlooked by the public attention, the capital is home to a series of rich,…
  • Indonesia : 40,000 years

    Akhyari Hananto
    8 Oct 2014 | 7:15 pm
    By DEBORAH NETBURN Archaeologists working in Indonesia say prehistoric hand stencils and intricately rendered images of primitive animals were created nearly 40,000 years ago. These images, discovered in limestone caves on the island of Sulawesi just east of Borneo, are about the same age as the earliest known art found in the caves of northern Spain and southern France, suggesting that Europe can no longer claim to be the sole birthplace of art. The findings were published Wednesday in the journal Science. “We now have 40,000-year-old rock art in Spain and Sulawesi,” said Adam…

    by Tasa Nugraza Barley Being the largest Muslim nation in the world by population, it’s not difficult to find a mosque in Indonesia, especially in Jakarta. But you’d be forgiven for walking by the Masjid Hidayatullah and missing its purpose completely. Located on Jalan Karet Depan in South Jakarta, the Hidayatullah Mosque’s dominant feature is its Chinese-style pagoda. A closer look reveals the beautiful Arabic calligraphy engraved on the entrance gate that marks it as a Muslim house of worship. But the pagoda isn’t the only detail that makes this mosque unique. The building is a…
