"Tracing Colonial Steps" Magelang by Goldenboy

Magelang Travel Guide: 30 reviews and 87 photos

This used to be my childhood town. I was born and grew up here. It is just a small town surrounded by mountains. That is why it called Magelang, short for 'magma as gelang' (bracelet). I will write more about Magelang later. Thanks for understanding.

Underconstruction page. Please pay a visit later. Thanks.

    I was born in Magelang 1941. Since I plan to visit the city this year (July-August)I wonder whether you could help to find a street list comparing the names of 1940's and today's names as well as a citymap of that time.
    Thanks in advance.
    Looking forward to hear from you

    That 1-to-1 Christmas celebration sounds fab. Hello to your Mother. Your area has some nice colonial buildings. Stay banana, I would be eager to try it.
