Very picturesque! Jakarta . . . A great photo by Ricky Purnadi Riqua.  I would love to visit and see more of these "Great House" structures representative of the Minangkabau culture in West Sumatra Indonesia. Ricky tells me that the music, dance, and food are equally exotic.

For centuries, the Indonesian vernacular architecture has shaped settlements in Indonesia which commonly took form of timber structures built on stilts dominated by large roof. The most dominant foreign influences on Indonesian architecture were Indian, although European influences have been particularly strong since the 19th century and modern architecture in Indonesia is international in scope.
