Toko Merah

Historic Building in Kota & Glodok

One of the more impressive buildings in Kota is the red-tiled facade of Toko Merah (or 'Red Shop'), which dates back to 1730. It was once the home of Governor General van Imhoff, when he was in charge of the Dutch East Indies. It got its colour in 1851. It's worth a closer look if you are in the area.
