Gedung Srimanganti

I just found a nice post about Gedung Srimanganti and Gamelan of Sumedang Larang (will be posted next post). Decided to ask the author, and gladly-to-say he granted me to share his good works here, at Sumedang Daily Photo. You also can read the complete story on his blog, here.

Sumedang, West Java, is an old town rich in history that is often being forgotten. I visited its museum finally for the first time -Museum Prabu Geusan Ulun- and really in love with the building. A colonial architecture that simple in details, humble but grand at the same time.

Built in 1706, Gedong Sri Manganti - the name of this building, which means the building to wait for important people - was also formerly known as Land Huizen. It has a long history as government formal residence before it's turned into museum in1974.

  1. Menarik kalau semakin banyak artikel yang bahas mengenai sejarah dan penggunaan bangunan tua/tempo dulu yang masih berdiri di sumedang dari awal sampai sekarang. Baik yang dipergunakan untuk publik atau juga yang berupa rumah tinggal... Sayang takutnya banyak yang di masa depan beralih fungsi atau menghilang, jadi setidaknya ada literatur dan dokumentasi yang bisa dfiwariskan. Terimakasih
