Nearby is a large lake with islands in the shapes of the original Indonesian archipelago. From the sky lift that passes over the lake visitors can see clearly the entire map of Indonesia in the lake.

Taman Mini is the brainchild of the late Ibu Tien Soeharto, former Indonesian First Lady.  Construction of Taman Mini began in 1971 and it was officially inaugurated on April 20, 1975.

The Park has as chief mission the preservation and development of the various Indonesian cultures as a media to strengthen the nation’s unity and integrity and to instill these values especially in the young generation.
