The Governor-General’s palace in Buitenzorg, nowadays Bogor. Primarily used as a retreat or a place to entertain foreign dignitaries outside the hustle and bustle of Batavia, the Governor-General’s Palace was surrounded by nature and hosts a deer park as can be seen in the picture. After the Indonesian independence, the palace was renamed Istana Bogor and continues to serve as a retreat and residence for the President.

Later, back in the Netherlands, they were being made into decorative lithographs.
