The Tomb of Bung Karno Bahasa Indonesia

The tomb complex was one complex with Javanese local architecture called Joglo. Since 2004 had been added with new building which became one complex with the old building of the tomb complex. The architect team led by Pribadi Widodo and Baskoro Tedjo from ITB. Since we enter the area of the tomb, there’s a new building that attract our attention.

Anatomy of Bung Karno’s Complex according to my vision

makam bung karno 1

The old gate, formed candi or temple in big size. It’s likely to draw the past to the present started with the old complex, in the form of ancient temple, with stones.

makam bung karno 2

The building that covers the tomb of Bung Karno. The shape of ‘pendopo’ (traditional Javanese terrace house) covers the tomb. The Joglo form is more recent than the ‘candi’ form.

The space that connect the old and the new building is conjucting, refreshing.

makam sukarno 2

The modern building from the new complex. The functional ideas put in the past traditional ideas with the use of stones for the outer wall. The imitation of the old tradition and material from temples in Java.

The Penataran Temple

Not far from the tomb complex, another great architectural ruins object from the past that is very much important to indonesian culture stands. The Penataran temple complex. We did an anatomy analysis to the plan of the complex, shown below;

We found there are a lot of the parts of the temple that was unexplainable, due to our limited knowledge, like the supranatural concept. Therefore, we just observed the site with our modern comprehension.

One of the most interesting view of the main temple. Seemly, the main temple had lost most part of the building and the height. If it was still there, we’re quite sure that the building was very tall.
