So the park is an ideal spot for week-end family outing and also international tourist who did not have enough time to explore Indonesia.
Located in Pondok Gede village, East Jakarta municipality, Taman Mini Indonesia Indah covers 120 hectares and have play a role as a synopsis of Indonesian culture, with virtually all aspects of daily life in Indonesia's 26 (in 1975) provinces encapsulated in separate pavilions with the collections of architecture, clothing, dances and traditions are all depicted impeccably.

Late Indonesia First Lady, Siti Hartinah Soeharto (best known as Tien Sohearto), originally, was the first person who has idea to build the smaller scale of Indonesia. The idea came out at a convention on 8 Cendana Street at March 13, 1970. Through this recreational site, she hoped more Indonesian people will have more national pride than before.
The project called Indonesian Miniature Project was started by Harapan Kita Foundation in 1972. The concept of this culture-based recreational area was taken from the fact that Indonesia has unparalled richness and diversity from many different aspects.
Since each Indonesian province maintains its own unique and distinct cultures, shelters, attire and dialects, TMII built a model of each of the houses from Indonesian provinces. TMII attempted not only to reconstruct the homes of the various provinces, called anjungan but also to create a realistic model of the environment and shelters of the various people of Indonesia.
The venues, which are situated around the main lake in a similar fashion to the different islands of the Indonesian archipelago, are thematically divided into six areas in respect to the main islands of Indonesia; Java, Sumatra, Kalimantan (Borneo), Sulawesi, the Lesser Sunda Islands, Maluku and Papua.
