The Jakarta Post, Jakarta, Fri January 19, 2018

The Depok Heritage Community has asked the government to turn Rumah Cimanggis in Depok, West Java, into a museum instead of demolishing it.

The building, which was built between 1771 and 1775, came under the media’s spotlight after the central government planned to demolish it to make way for the construction of the Indonesia International Islamic University (UIII) campus recently.

“I suggested that Rumah Cimanggis should be used as a museum. So, all historical collections in Depok such as artifacts and photos would be displayed there,” said community head Ratu Farah Diba on Thursday, as quoted by

She added that the former mansion of Dutch East Indies Company (VOC) governor general Petrus Albertus van der Parra had ample land that could be used as a parking lot for visitors.

The museum would also help local residents know Depok’s history, Ratu said.

The planned demolition of the dilapidated house was canceled amid mounting protests from several parties.
