The building is well maintained and used as the official site of Cirebon's major. It is suggested to shoot pictures right in the front of the building at night or early in the morning.....but as far as I know, there is no significant tourism object here, once I asked permission to shoo pictures in the front yard, and that's all I could do.

It is not very common to go, but if you like history, the Cirebon Town Hall became a hiding place in the Republican era/ Colonialism era. It has an oval room too.

Javanese cities have a hidden wealth of fine colonial buildings, which are rarely mentioned in travel guides. Cirebon has some beautiful pre-colonial shrines, mosques and palaces but the Dutch also added some attractive architecture. One of the finest examples is Cirebon Town Hall, built in the art-deco style and completed in 1939, just before the Japanese Imperial Army arrived and ended European rule of the Indies.

Cirebon means 'prawn waters' in Sundanese and the city is sometimes referred to as 'Prawn City' to this day. It certainly has some tasty local specialities and the humble prawn even finds itself used as a decorative motif in the town hall. In recent years, someone has painted the prawns gold, making them stand out from the otherwise white structure.
