Jalan Asia Afrika
- Asia Afrika Street has a very close relationship with the establishment of Bandung. Because at that time, Governor-General Herman Willem Deaendels from the Netherlands stuck his stick when he ordered the establishment of this city, which was later enshrined as the Bandung Zero Kilometer monument.
- Before the Asia-Africa Conference was held, long before it had the name Groote Postweg or also known as Jalan Raya Pos. It’s a road segment built by Deandels that stretches from Anyer to Panarukan along 1,000 km and claimed up to 30,000 lives in the construction process.
- This historic road is also known as point 0 Kilometer Bandung. Zero-point is often associated with the beginning of urban development. At that time, the transfer of the Bandung city government, the Dayeuh Kolot area, was moved to this road in 1810. The oldest road in Bandung is also close to the Cikapundung River as a water source for city development.
- Braga is the name of the main street in Bandung, Indonesia. The name of this street is well known since the reign of the Dutch East Indies. Until now, the name of the street is still maintained as one of the mascots and a tourist attraction in the city of Bandung, which was formerly known as Paris van Java.
- Initially Braga was a small street in front of a quiet residential area, so it was called Jalan Culik (kidnapped street) because it was quite vulnerable, also known as Jalan Pedati (Pedatiweg) in the 1900s. Jalan Braga became crowded because many businessmen, especially Dutch nationals, set up shops, bars, and entertainment venues in the area as the Onderling Belang shop. Then in the 1920s-1930s, clothing shops and boutiques appeared that took the model in Paris, France, which was the mecca of clothing models in the world. The construction of the Societeit Concordia building, used for meetings of the wealthy gentlemen of Bandung, the Savoy Homann Hotel, office buildings, and others in several blocks around this road increased the popularity and crowds of this street.
MUSEUM KONFERENSI ASIA AFRIKA (MUSEUM OF THE ASIAN-AFRICAN CONFERENCE)
The museum was named MUSEUM OF THE ASIAN-AFRICAN CONFERENCE, in order to memorize the venue of the Asian-African Conference that became the source of inspiration and motivation for the Asian African nations. In accordance with its historical value, Museum of the Asian-African Conference is located in Gedung Merdeka at Jalan Asia Afrika Number 65, Bandung. The Asian-African Conference held in Bandung on 18 – 24 April 1955 became a very important event in the history of Indonesian foreign policy and a great occasion for the nation and the Government of Indonesia. It is so, since the conference was held only ten years after Indonesia announced its independence. Within a short time, Indonesians had their courage to propose as the host for such important international conference. The most important thing was that the conference ended successfully in formulating common concerns and in preparing operational guidance for cooperation among Asian African nations, as well as in creating world order and world peace. The conference bore the Dasasila Bandung, which became the guideline for the colonized countries in fighting for their independence
