The World's Largest Sundial



This is the tip of what is claimed to be the largest sundial in the world. "The Sundial" is the landmark of Kota Baru Parahyangan (Parahyangan New Town), a new satellite town located about 17 kilometers west of Bandung, near the Padalarang exit of Padaleunyi-Cipularang Toll Road.

This 20 meter tall structure, which functions as a vertical and horizontal sundial, houses West Java's Science and Technology Exhibition Center. The Sundial is open for the public Tuesday to Sunday, from 8:30 AM to 4:30 PM. It closes on Monday, Ied Al-Fitri, Christmas, and New Year.
