If you happen to go from Jogja to Semarang via Ambarawa - Semarang new highway, you'll find these ruins right after the first crossroad there.
(Some pictures I took a while ago. Not very clear though, because the car was moving sooo fast, and the distance from the road to those ruins is rather far)
It is a large building, could be fortress, or maybe prison, or government office, which are separated into some parts. There are most likely four small buildings (not sure, because wild plants have grown and blocked the sight) which surrounds the largest one in the middle.
I always have this special interest about old buildings like this, and I really, reallycurious about this one, too. Haven't found any informations about it yet, though.
Is it one of the fortresses the Deutch built at war era long times ago? Or does it have any connections with historical events, like Five Days in Semarang, or Ambarawa War? Does it have anything to do with Diponegoro? Or General Soedirman, maybe?
But if it is one of the historical sites, then why it keeps abandoned like that? I mean, if it is a historical site, then normally, the government would take care of it, and transform it into a museum or something, right?
Man I really, really curious! Seriously,, >.<
Would be really happy if someone could give me some informations about this...
Ah well, forgive my random post m(__)m
