Gedung Sate, Bandung


Bandung 's cool upland climate was a major factor in the establishment of the city by the Dutch in 1810. Originally a garrison town, Bandung grew rapidly in importance after a railway line reached the city in 1884. The city served for a time as headquarters of the colonial government of the Netherlands East Indies. Several fine examples of Dutch colonial architecture survive in Bandung today.
