At the right side of the Padang you see the <font color =?blue?>Supreme Court</font> and the <font color =?blue?>City Hall</font>.
Supreme Court (building with the dome) was built in 1939 at the place where once stood the famous Hotel de l?Europe.
City Hall was built ten years earlier. In this building the British signed the capitulation in 1942, even so for the Japanese three years later. Nowadays City Hall houses different Ministries, like the Foreign Affair Ministry.
