UNPAK - The arrangement of the Batu Tulis area planned by the Bogor City government began to be matured by holding a joint discussion with academics, residents, communities and even cultural figures in the City Hall of Bogor.
The Mayor of Bogor, Bima Arya said the meeting was to hear input from the perspectives of various elements invited related to the arrangement of the Batutulis area which has historical value of the Sunda Pakuan Pajajaran Kingdom.
"We would like to hear input from an academic, historical, cultural perspective and also from cultural observers regarding the planning of the Batutulis area. During this time there are indeed many versions where the real location of the Kingdom of Sundanese Pakuan Pajajaran. But the literature is quite strong some of the references that direct that the center of the kingdom is in the Batutulis area, "said Bima, Wednesday (01/29/2020) evening.
However, he continued, the workshop did not discuss the direction of the royal location. But rather to the great program of historical search and revive the culture of the Kingdom of Pajajaran by starting from one point, the Batutulis Inscription.
"So far we have seen the conditions just like that. The land is not too large, visited by 100-200 people in one month. Not much, "he explained. Bima believes that the culturalists and other stakeholders have the same ideals and dreams to develop a historic area where there is a legacy of one of the biggest kingdoms in the archipelago.
"God willing, we will start structuring from this point on. If we look at the location it is too small and we want to develop it into a museum. Because it is planned in the future there will be land expansion. Next to him, according to information, there is the house of Mrs. Megawati. God willing, it has been processed to be submitted to Mrs. Mega's family. If it can be donated, of course it's very good, but we'll see how it develops, "Bima said.
Then, continued Bima, next to it was the Batutulis Public Elementary School (SDN) which would later be coordinated to move to another area not far from the previous location.
"The location of SD Batutulis is quite wide. And indeed it is not possible to have an elementary school there because the traffic there is quite congested and too close to the highway, worried elementary school children crossing the accident-prone according to the principal, "he explained.
Bima Arya also presented a temporary design to be discussed with cultural figures and the public.
"This is just the initial idea of a consultant like this. We present it to the public, so there is an idea to be taken then input. There is a parking lot, there is an information center, art activities, there are public spaces as well, royal dioramas and so on. It could be later two floors, "he explained.
While Professor of History of the University of Padjadjaran, Professor Nina Herlina Lubis expressed her support for the City Government's plan to organize the Batutulis region. "I strongly support the effort to start by preserving the legacy of the Sunda Kingdom when centered at Pakuan Pajajaran. This is the initial stage," Nina said.
Prof. Nina also gave input related to the arrangement by making the concept of living concerts or live performances complete with the royal museum.
"Actually, the capital of Pajajaran used to be 9x11 kilometers. But this arrangement would not need to dismantle the infrastructure that already exists now. We only preserve the relics of the 10 scattered pieces and it was turned on by living concerts or live performances so people are not returning to the past but how it is reflected in the present like this, "he explained.
He added, in the future Bogor City Government is expected to be able to create the concept of an ecomuseum like in Rome, Italy.
"The museum in Rome is the embodiment of the Roman Empire or the Roman Empire. So a city that has a historical heritage but does not interfere with the community, instead the city became a museum. Earlier, there was a legacy near Batutulis. I have been researching this with my friends for four years to later make what the capital city of Pakuan Pajajaran looks like, and I involve not only historians, there are also archaeologists, geologists, geologists. Hopefully it's right, "said Nina.Unduh artikel selengkapnyaPenataan Kawasan Batutulis
