Candra Naya (Hokkien: Sin Ming Hui) is an 18th-century historic building in Jakarta, Indonesia. It was home to the Khouw family of Tamboen, most notably its highest-ranking member: Khouw Kim An, the last Majoor der Chinezen ('Major of the Chinese') of Batavia (in office from 1910 until 1942). Although among the grandest colonial residences in the capital and protected by heritage laws, the compound was almost completely demolished by its new owners, the conglomerate Modern Group. The main halls have survived only thanks to vocal protests from heritage conservation groups.
Candra Naya was built in 1807 or earlier in the late 18th-century. The most notable Chinese features of the house are its traditional curving roof, its Tou-Kung roof frame and its moon gates. The compound consisted originally of three main buildings, surrounded by ancillary buildings to its north and south. The three main buildings consist of a one-floored reception hall; a two-floored, semi-private central hall for worship; and the private, two-floored rear building for the family. The main buildings were separated from each other by a series of inner courtyards.

The place was small. Actually quite interesting cause there are historical value... But the annoying things happen when we are prohibited to use camera on such a "travel place" so just use ur phone to capture this place that should be named not a museum but more to commercial place 😑

1 of the hidden historical site from Dutch colonial era & had important roled in Indonesia histories. This building was originally a private house of a Tionghoa Major. Now this house becomes a museum. This house is unique because it settles around the high skype buildings such hotel, office & apartment. Thanks to management building company that still maintain this hundreds years old house, so we can see & learn our own history. No ticket entry. No guide needed, except you really need to know the explanation all about it. Family friendly. Good for the children. Nice place. No worries about food, there are some coffee cafe & restaurant.

Candra Naya is one of the heritage building in Jakarta. It was a chinese school before it was forced to close during the new order period. The restoration revive Candra Naya as one of the historic place to visit when you go to Jakarta. The side building now preserve as a food kiosk. While around the main building theres an Accord’s Novotel Hotel and Apartment. There’s also new opened Starbucks Coffee Shop. It’s ethnic facade and feels will make you relax and slows down a bit.
