In Banda Aceh you can see ships washed into the middle of the town of Banda. A great part of the town has been rebuild with aid from all over the world after this natural disaster in 2004. Also interesting to visit is the ’Kerkhof’ where Dutch and Indonesian soldiers are buried during the thirty years war between the revolting Aceh against the Dutch colonial power. One of the most beautiful mosks in the Indonesia is the Baturrahman Mosque, built by a Dutch architect in 1877 to create goodwill of the Aceh people during this revolt.
