|Presidential Palace, Jakarta|
Jakarta, (depoKini) - RI's Presidential Palace, where President Joko Widodo (Jokowi) has offices, is one of the most important buildings and is a silent witness to the nation's current journey. A number of important decisions and events took place and were decided from behind the Palace walls.
The Presidential Palace is also a place to receive state guests. Therefore, it is not wrong if the State Palace is also said to be a symbol of the sovereignty of a country.
In many countries, Presidential Palace buildings are mostly old buildings that are more than a century old.
In Indonesia, the Presidential Palace complex, located on Jalan Medan Merdeka Utara, is a remnant of Dutch colonial heritage whose construction was only begun in 1796.
Some buildings which until now have been sturdy and become a place of state activities, include the State Palace, the Merdeka Palace, and the State Guesthouse.
Apart from the important and historic side of the Presidential Palace, there are a number of unique and mysterious stories which until now have not been solved. One of them is about rumors that the Presidential Palace is haunted and reveals a number of other unique and mystical stories.
Here are four mystical stories at the Jakarta Presidential Palace:
1. Ghost of the Palace Residents
Rumors about the story of the haunted Jakarta Presidential Palace building are not just figments. A number of people who often move in the Palace environment claimed to have felt the spooky environment of the Palace.
The third daughter of President Abdurrahman Wahid, Yenny Wahid, admitted this. He even reminded President Jokowi, who at that time was only appointed as president in 2014 and that the building in the Palace has mystical air.
"For example, the air conditioner is too cold because it is installed centrally, many mice, and many mosquitoes. Many ghosts too," he said.
The same thing was also conveyed by the author of Gus Dur: The Authorized Biography of Abdurrahman Wahid, Greg Barton. In his book, Barton mentions that President Suharto had not slept in the Palace during his 32 years in power.
"Suharto only used this place for official state events and never slept here," Greg Barton wrote.
The existence of spirits in the scope of the Merdeka Palace was also justified by Munib Huda Muhammad, a former Gus Dur aide. He said, people at the Merdeka Palace believed there were ghosts inhabiting the Palace.
"As for myself, I really feel a lot of ghosts there. Wong hasn't been used for decades. It's scary," Munib said.
