Monumen Nasional

National Monument or the popular abbreviated or Tugu Monas Monument is a monument as high as 132 meters (433 feet) which was established to commemorate the resistance and the Indonesian people's struggle for independence from the Dutch East Indies colonial administration. Construction of this monument began on August 17, 1961 under the orders of President Sukarno, and opened to the public on July 12, 1975. The monument is crowned with flame-coated gold leaf that symbolizes the spirit of the glowing struggle. National Monument is located right in the middle of Merdeka Square, Central Jakarta. Monuments and museums are open every day starting at 08:00 to 15:00 West Indonesia Time. On Monday last week of each month is closed to the public.


After the central government of the Republic of Indonesia returned to Jakarta after the previous domicile in Yogyakarta in 1950 following the recognition of the sovereignty of the Republic of Indonesia by the Dutch government in 1949, President Sukarno began thinking about building a national monument which is equivalent to the Eiffel Tower on the ground right in front of Merdeka Palace. Monas monument Development aims to commemorate and preserve the Indonesian struggle during the revolution of independence, 1945, to continue to inspire patriotism and spirit of present and future generations.

On August 17, 1954 a national committee was formed and a national monument design competition held in 1955. There are 51 works entered, but only one works made by Frederich Silaban who meet the prescribed criteria of the committee, among others, describe the character of the Indonesian nation and can last for centuries. The second contest was held in 1960 but again none of 136 participants who meet the criteria. Chairman of the jury later asked Silaban to show the design to Sukarno. However, Sukarno less like the design it and he wanted the monument was shaped phallus and yoni. Silaban then asked to design a monument with a theme like that, but the design of the proposed Silaban too extraordinary that the costs are very large and can not be borne by the state budget, especially when economic conditions were bad enough. Silaban refused to design a smaller building, and suggested that development be postponed until the Indonesian economy improves. Sukarno then asks architect R.M. Soedarsono to resume the draft. Soedarsono enter number 17, 8 and 45, represent begin August 17, 1945 proclamation of Indonesian independence, into the design of the monument. [1] [2] [3] The National Memorial was later built in the area of 80 hectares. This monument diarsiteki Silaban and R. Friedrich M. Soedarsono, began construction August 17, 1961

The second phase of development took place in the period 1966 until 1968 due to the September 30th Movement of 1965 (G-30-S/PKI) and an attempted coup, this phase was delayed. The final stage took place in 1969-1976 by adding a diorama at the museum's history. Although construction has been completed, problems still occur, including leakage of water that flooded the museum.

Also Monas form can also be interpreted as a pair of "pestle" and "mortar", a rice pestle found in every traditional Indonesian peasant household.

Kebun Raya Bogor

Bogor Botanical Garden was originally a part of the 'samida' (artificial forests or parks artificial) that most do not already exist in the government of Sri Baduga Maharaja (King Siliwangi, 1474-1513) of the Kingdom of Sunda, as stated in the inscription Batutulis. Artificial forests were designated for the purpose of preserving the environment as a place to preserve seeds of rare wood. In addition it also made samida samida similar on the border with Bogor Cianjur (Forest Ciung Vanara). The forest is then allowed after submission of Sunda Kingdom of Banten Sultanate, until the Governor-General van der Capellen build a vacation home in one corner in the middle of the 18th century.

In the early 1800s Governor-General Thomas Stamford Raffles, who inhabit the Bogor Palace and have a great interest in botany, interested in developing the Bogor Palace yard into a beautiful garden. With the help of botanists, W. Kent, who helped build Kew Gardens in London, Raffles turn the courtyard into a classic English-style garden. This is the beginning of the Bogor Botanical Gardens in shape now.

In 1814 Olivia Raffles (wife of Governor-General Thomas Stamford Raffles) died of illness and was buried in Batavia. As the preservation, monument for him was established in the Bogor Botanical Gardens.

The idea began with the establishment of the Botanical Gardens of Abner, a biologist who wrote a letter to the Governor-General GAGPh. van der Capellen. The letter expressed his desire to ask for a piece of land that would be a useful garden plants, where teacher education, and collection of plants for the development of the other gardens.

Prof. Caspar Georg Karl Reinwardt is one German who moved to Holland and became a scientist botany and chemistry. He was then appointed as minister of agriculture, arts, and science in Java and beyond. He is interested in investigating the various plants used for treatment. He decided to collect all these plants in a botanical garden in the city of Bogor, which was then called Buitenzorg (from the Dutch language, which means "do not have to worry"). Reinwardt also a pioneer in the field of making herbarium. He became known as a founder Herbarium Bogoriense.

In May 18, 1817, Governor-General Godert Alexander Gerard Philip van der Capellen was officially founded with the name of the Bogor Botanical Gardens Buitenzorg s'Lands Plantentuinte. Its establishment was initiated by putting the first spade in the earth swing Pajajaran as a sign of the construction of the vineyard development, whose implementation led by Reinwardt own, assisted by James Hooper and W. Kent (from the famous Kew Gardens in Richmond, England).

About 47 hectares of land around the former presidential palace in Bogor and samida be the first land for botanical gardens. Reinwardt became its first director from 1817 until 1822. This opportunity is used to collect plants and seeds from other parts of the archipelago. Bogor immediately became the center of agriculture and horticulture development in Indonesia. In those days life is estimated about 900 plants grown in the orchard.

Reinwardt in 1822 returned to Holland and was replaced by Dr. Carl Ludwig Blume take inventory of the collection of plants that grow in the garden. He also compiled the first catalog of the garden which were recorded as many as 912 species (species) of plants. Implementation of development of this garden was halted due to lack of funds but then started again by Johannes Elias Teysmann (1831), an expert in the palace gardens Governor-General Johannes van den Bosch. With the assistance of Karl Justus Hasskarl, he made arrangements planting collections by grouping according to the tribe (family).

Teysmann later replaced by Dr. Rudolph Herman Christiaan Carel Scheffer in 1867 became director, and followed later by Prof.. Dr. Melchior Treub.

The establishment of the Bogor Botanical Gardens can be said to initiate the development of science in Indonesia. From here was born a few other scientific institutions, such as the Bibliotheca bogoriensis (1842), Herbarium Bogoriense (1844), Cibodas Botanical Garden (1860), Laboratory Treub (1884), and the Museum and Laboratory of Zoology (1894).

On May 30, 1868 Bogor Botanical Gardens officially separate the management with the Bogor Palace pages.

At first, this garden will only be used as an experimental garden for plantation crops that will be introduced to the Dutch East Indies (now Indonesia). But in its development is also used as a container of research scientists of that era (1880-1905).

Bogor Botanical Gardens is always experienced significant growth under the leadership of Dr. Carl Ludwig Blume (1822), JE. Teijsmann and Dr. Hasskarl (the time of Governor General Van den Bosch), J. E. Teijsmann and Simon Binnendijk, Dr. R.H.C.C. Scheffer (1867), Professor. Dr. Treub Melchior (1881), Dr. Jacob Christiaan Koningsberger (1904), Van den Hornett (1904), and Prof. Ir. Koestono Setijowirjo (1949), which is the first Indonesian who was a lead research institution with international standards.

At the time of the leadership figures that have been made cataloging activity on the Bogor Botanical Gardens, a complete listing of collection Cryptogamae plants, 25 species of gymnosperms, 51 species and 2200 species Monocotyledonae Dicotyledonae, business recognition of important economic crops in Indonesia, collecting plants useful for Indonesia (43 types, including vanilla, palm oil, quinine, gutta-percha, sugarcane, cassava, maize from America, ironwood from Palembang and Kalimantan), and develop internal institutional Botanical Gardens are
