The Doors of National Archive Building

It always amazes me everytime I visited this building;  the National Archive Building stands gracefully amongst the hustle bustle of Jakarta, and against its dust and pollution. Built in Renaissance style circa 1760 AD by Reiner de Klerk - Governor of East Indie Company, somehow it has an Indonesian and Chinese flair in it. It's doors, especially, has caught my heart: tall, solid, grand, but not overstated. 

Some Dutch and Chinese ceramic tiles lined the walls and floors.
