(Image:Semarang_lawang_sewu.jpg) There are some Dutch colonial buildings around Tugu Muda; the most famous one is '''Lawang Sewu''' which means '''A Thousand Doors''' in Javanese, although it doesn't have that many doors. It was built as the headquarters of the local railway company, and over time served various purposes. The Dutch reputedly used the foundation as a sort of jail and torture centre. Flashlight tours of the foundation, with it's interesting system of small pools of water to help keep it cool, are a fun scare. The attic, with its twin water towers, is also interesting as it was used by the military at one point as a badminton court. During World War II, it was used as the Japanese army's headquarters, and further atrocities were committed by the Japanese. Lawang Sewu's main attraction is its tall stained glass windows. The building is now undergoing restoration and usage by the railway company once again, after many years of laying vacant and being used for events; fortunately it is still open to the public. Tour guides are available at the building's entrance. Though reputed to be haunted by a variety of supernatural beings from various eras due to the great number of executions there before and during WWII, Lawang Sewu remains one of Semarang's most prominent landmarks.
