This building is known as the landmark of Semarang (the capital city of Central Java Province). The name Lawang Sewu is taken from Javanese language which means thousand doors. Does it really have thousand doors? Well … you are welcome to count them by yourself. 😛
It was built in early 1900’s and used as main office of Het Hoofdkantoorvan de Nederlandsch Indische Spoorweg Maatscappij (NIS) . Though it has been a hundred years old, the building that was built with European style and has local ornament still strongly exists.
Wanna see it yourself ? Just visit my lovely hometown, Semarang. 🙂
