13th Annual Smithsonian.com Photo Contest
Inside a tunnel in the Speelwijk Fort, Indonesia.
We entered the ruins of the Dutch-constructed Speelwijk Fort in Banten Lama, 2 hours from the capital, Jakarta in Indonesia. The fort was built in the 17th century to strengthen the Banten Kingdom. What attracted us most were the tunnels such as this one leading to various rooms. One of the oldest Buddhist temples in Indonesia, Vihara Avalokiteshwara is next to the fort.
