Tegallega, a 17 hectare-wide field, is one of Bandung's special characteristic. Monument Bandung Lautan Api is standing in the middle of the field. The monument remind us about a historic event named Bandung Lautan Api. In March 24, 1946, the citizen of Bandung burned their own houses and properties to avoid utilization by enemy. At that day, Bandung became field of fire ("lautan api").
Every morning, especially in the weekend, hundreds of people come here to do sport. Lots of them go jogging around the monument. Others do gymnastic, badminton, soccer, biking, etc.
There are also merchants. Many things are sold here. Fruits, vegetables, books, clothes, snacks, bubbles, toys, etc. I notice that cleanliness is kept by everyone here. You may also want to try some breakfast menu such as chicken porridge, noodle, etc.
This is the lirycs of the song made to remind Bandung Lautan Api event. It titled "Halo-halo Bandung".
