Taman Amir Hamzah: You May Find the Little Gus Dur Statue


Taman Amir Hamzah or Amir Hamzah Park, the name of this park is taken from the name of one of the writers named Amir Hamzah, a descendant of the Malay Sultanate of Langkat North Sumatra. Amir Hamzah died without trial in the social revolution in East Sumatra on March 20, 1946. He was later named as a national hero in 1975.

When he was a kid, Gus Dur – Former of President of Indonesia – often played in Taman Amir Hamzah. He often plays in this park because the location of Gus Dur’s parents is just across the Taman Amir Hamzah. No wonder a little Gus Dur statue was set up in this park to commemorate Gus Dur who often played in this park.
