Monumen Perjuangan Rakyat Jawa Barat #2 (Bandung Daily Photo's 100th Post)
As promised yesterday, today I brought you more photographs of Monumen Perjuangan Rakyat Jawa Barat. I took the top photo from the west side of the monument. The next two photos below are, respectively, that of the frontal view of the monument and the plaza that connects the monument with Gedung Sate (West Java gubernatorial office mansion) in the far south.
The symbol at the center of the monument in the second photograph is that of Garuda Pacasila, Indonesia's coat of arm.
In the bottom photograph, Gedung Sate is the distant building with tiered, pagoda-like, roof. On top of this roof there is a skewered barbeque (Indonesian: sate) like structure. That is why the building is named Gedung Sate, which literally means Satay Building. I'll post a closer look of it and the story of this quintessential Bandung's landmark sometime later.
This post is my 100th post. I'd like to thank you all of you who have visited this blog, left kind words and encouraging comments, provided this relatively new blog with generous links so that it can reach more audience worldwide, and above all for your interests in my beloved city, Bandung. Through this blog and yours - the city daily photo blogs worldwide - I sincerely hope we can achieve a better understanding of each other and together build a better world.
