In Indonesia, Main Square (Indonesian Language name it as “Alun-Alun”) is always identically with downtown and government offices. And will usually be a landmark for the region concerned.
Similarly with Cilacap Main Square. I will dissect what’s in this main square.
Come at night to captures the beauty of Cilacap Main Square.
1. Fisherman Monument
This monument shows the statue of a fisherman couple who are raising wijayakusuma flower. precisely located in front of the Main Square courtyard. At night, the fountain under it will emits various colors rotately so we can enjoy the blend of its beauty from Main Square courtyard.
This monument is located on the protocol street i.e Jenderal Sudirman Street and becomes the center of 3 way intersection. When saturday night arrives, the traffic flow along this monument will be closed and will become a night tourist spot for foreigners aand Cilacap townspeople.
2. Jami’ Mosque Darussalam
The interesting thing from this jami mosque is its minaret. Like in the fountain of Fishermen Monument, the mosque minaret also emits very harmonious colors with Fisherman Monument ones.
Located to the west of Main Square and flanked by 2 main roads i.e Jenderal Sudirman Street and Masjid Street.
The lower chamber of the minaret is a radio station i.e 107.2 Radio Da’wah Daarussalaam FM Cilacap.
3. Cilacap Regent Office
Whereever Main Square location then that is where the government office is located. Located to the north of Main Square, the Regent’s Office has large gates and yard before actually entering the main office building.
3. Cilacap Penitentiary
Located on Mataram 1 Street, this building is a Penitentiary Class IIB with maximum capacity of 500 prisoners.
At night, the Penitentiary is very quiet and strangely horrified when I lingered in front of it.
4. Cilacap Judiciary
I was overlooked to captured this object because I thought there wasn’t more buildings in Main Square after captured Penitentiary. The building itself is flanked by Jenderal Sudirman Street and Mataram 1 Street, precisely at right front of Main Square.
5. The Park Fountain
Located opposite Jenderal Sudirman Street, in front of the Main Square courtyard. This fountain is located inside a park behind the CILACAP BERCAHAYA lighting board.
The color change in the fountain makes the park look very beautiful.
Well …. If you go to Cilacap, visit Main Square for culinary tour and enjoy the light party around it.
