Great location, just behind National Museum (walk about 200 meter). Perfect location for taking art photo, but you had to pay a lot of mount of money for taking prewed picture, commercial pict or art picture here. There were no more body inside the grave.

It is a beautiful place, very quiet and calm. Great spot for photography. It is like a hidden gem in the middle of the city. The entrance fee is also very cheap. Sadly, there is no brochure or guide book about the place.

We took a day trip from Bali to Jakarta to specifically visit this museum/ cemetery very recently. My husband's ancestor is buried here, next to Olivia Raffles. We took a Silverbird taxi on the recommendation of a local we met on the plane over, and we had the use of the car for about £30 for up to four hours,... More

I learned from people's blogs that this is one of great photography spots in Jakarta. So, I decided to come to see it for myself. First impression: eerie. I wouldn't want to visit it in the evening (after all it closes at 3 p.m). Very quiet although it is situated merely walking distance from the busy roads of Tanah Abang.... More

My gf and I went since it was near our hotel, an employee offered to give us a walking tour and explain along the way which was very nice and definitely helped in understanding the history behind it all. It was very interesting and large area.

In this memorial park there are many statues of cupids and angels that seem to have come from various graves. There are also two exquisite marble sculptures of weeping ladies, one standing and the other lying over a tomb. Among the graves of the Europeans there are also tombs of Chinese, Japanese and Indonesians, including the tombstone of Miss Riboet... More

This outdoor museum is actually amazing. I believe it's the only outdoor museum Jakarta has–or maybe Indonesia has. I 'dig' so many histories about Jakarta 'written' on the tomb stones. Too bad, I couldn't find my self feel comfort in there. Too many mosquitoes biting me.

Prasasti Museum is a couple of minutes walk from Citi M Hotel. Entrance fee is $5000. You will have the whole place to yourself as this graveyard is hardly visited by tourists. I don't think people would be so thrilled to visit an old graveyard. Best to visit in the day as it may be eerie after sunset! Here lies... More

I knew that this cemetery was somewhere in Jakarta. Amazingly enough it is hardly visited by tourists. My guide told me that nobody ever asked her to go there in the more than 30 years she was a tour guide! I found it extremely interesting as it tells the story of Dutch people who lived and died in former Batavia.... More
