Makam Belanda Peneleh

3 1

The expansive grounds of the cemetery contain the remains of many of the former Dutch colonial masters from years gone by and it is now preserved as a rarely visited tourist draw.

If you're interested in this side of Indonesia's past, this place will give you hours of pleasure as you wander through the well-kept graveyard. For others, it will be a 10-minute stroll of only passing interest.

The locals claim that the ghosts of the dead come out at night and that it is a downright scary place after dark. Sounds like most cemeteries to us.
