Bird's eye view of Semarang

Rach, Johannes

View of Semarang, seen from the west bank of the Semarang river.

Depicted in the foreground to the left is a mosque, now (2002) situated on the Jl. Imam Bonjol. Next to it are several Javanese houses, but the residence of the Javanese prince is not visible.

The Dutch part of the city is shown in the background, with to the left the flagpole and a watchtower.

Situated more to the right are the shipyard, barracks and warehouses of the VOC. The big building in the middle is the government building.
