"WAYANG MUSEUM TAMAN FATAHILLAH" Old Batavia - Kota Tip by RoyJava

Old Batavia - Kota, Jakarta: 35 reviews and 82 photos

by RoyJava

To me it was Yogyakarta (see link) which raised my interests into Wayang puppets. So the Wayang Museum TAMAN FATAHILLAH is a must because of the best Wayang puppets collection at Java. See how careful some puppets are taken care of (with incense, flowers etc.) and do not forget the puppets out of India, China, Malaysia and Cambodia, too.

At one time you can see some memorials to Jan Pieterszoon Coen, founder of Batavia (ancient name of Jakarta) in the downstairs courtyard ...
