Medan

Medan City Beautification

Not felt, 23 years I have left a beloved hometown, Medan. There's not much I remember from my childhood in the city, besides the memories of my parents struggle here, compact fraternal relations in Medan, as well as the unforgettable experience of the mother, mugged in the area of ​​the old garden animals. There is a deep longing to visit the city again.

Due to the policy of the company, a long drive from Pekanbaru-Jakarta-Medan with iron bird I had been through and end at Medan Polonia airport. Though some airlines airlines actually provide direct flight from Pekanbaru-Medan. But, yes grateful alone, which can eat for free on the plane =).

No significant changes from the airport since our family to leave the field, in addition to adding some tickets and service facilities are also stalls airport. And the most risky is near the airport is now emerging elite estates average two-storey. Kinda spooky also see a situation like this, given in 2005, a plane crash hit residential areas around Padang Bulan, an area which is actually close to the airport. In addition, the number and level of noise from the airport activity certainly affect the quality of health of the local community. The plan, Polonia airport will be replaced by the position of Kuala Namu Airport located in Deli Serdang. Once, when I was hard to eat, the mother and father often took me to the airport. According to him, when he arrived at the airport, I immediately voracious appetite jaya (strange behavior .. =) ..).

Down the center of the old town down the field like that has been mixed with the modernization here and there. It can be seen in the Kesawan Square. This area has been known since ancient as the largest commercial center in Medan. Ethnic gathered here pretty complex, ranging from Indian, Chinese, Malay, Minang, Javanese and Batak. Old buildings which still survive among other London building Sumatra, which was once owned by a consortium of renowned estates Harrison & Crossfield Plc London, residence of Tjong A Fie (former captain and the richest man in Medan), Tip Top Café (known since colonial times to the present), as well as several other buildings. A few years ago, Kesawan Square jugz have food places like Kya-Kya in Surabaya. But now the site is not there anymore. As the bride is the Merdeka Walk food court every afternoon-evening as a place to unwind crowded field community.

Not far from Kesawan Square, there is an icon of the city of Medan, the Palace Maimoon. Nuanced Moorish palace, Europe, and the Malay Sultanate of Deli is a legacy that is still reigns. This building reflects the development of Islam in Sumatra that has modern, where the level of its architecture has been mixing some elements of world culture. In this Maimoon Palace, Sultan Deli family resided until this sat. In one corner of the palace, there is one part of the sacred cannon, the cannon butts were formerly divided into two, one at the deli, and another is in Tanah Karo. According to legend, this gun is the embodiment of the younger brother of Green Princess Royal Palace Haru Haru struggling to maintain a fleet of strikes Aceh. Because too often firing volleys, cannon gets hot and eventually split into two. Whatever the story, this palace is still showing the charm of past grandeur timeless period.

Been to Palace Maimoon less complete it if they do not stop at the Grand Mosque. People there often refer to it as Masjid Simpang Kingdom, as no building (possibly a restaurant Minang) called Simpang Raya was in front of him. If a motorcycle and betor (motor rickshaw) called the Mosque Sisingamangaraja. But the official name of this mosque is Masjid Al Ma'shun. Built by Sultan Ma'mun Al Rashid Perkasa Alam in 1906 AD, the mosque is famous for its unique beauty and ornaments outside it. Blending style hodgepodge between Moor, India, Andalusia, and Europe, this mosque has also become one of the iconic Kingdom City, the nickname of the city of Medan. When Ramadan arrives, around the mosque standing tents authorized food vendors, and not infrequently there is a concert at Sri Garden Deli, which is right in front of him.

Seeing the many architectural styles blend and mixing of cultures of the world, reflects the strength of this city depends on the diversity of people who inhabit the city. This mix of cultures is also a form of survival of the famous character from the field. Field has now turned into a metropolis in northern parts of Sumatra. However, people still want to respect the remains of the past where the spirit of past glory accompany the heartbeat of this city. Terrain always makes me fond memories and wish to return. What is the reason? No reasons were complicated, because ".. It Medan, man ..! ..".











Flight attendant's voice that will soon be landing at Medan Polonia airport from the plane window visible row of the green hills in the distance slowly building row houses, highways and shopping centers look more vivid and feels even bigger aircraft just a few meters diatasanya when it's raining or the weather is less friendly landing course is not easy because that is the completion of the construction of a new airport in Kualanamu with a passenger capacity and larger aircraft should be expedited because it was too crowded Polonia airport received a boost passenger numbers and aircraft and the location close to the city center is less suitable as a international airport
