I find Armenian Church in Jakarta interesting. Googled a bit, found a page about Armenians in Surabaya, let’s save that for later :)
I honestly do not know what these ‘NLS, BOS, SS’ (for the stations part) stand for.
Regarding Weltevreden and Koningsplein [x]
In the late 18th century when the Dutch East Indies government moved their center of administration about 4 kilometres southward, from coastal old Batavia (now Kota) to Weltevreden (now Central Jakarta), they built several important buildings including the square. There were two main squares in Weltevreden: Buffelsveld and Waterlooplein (now Lapangan Banteng). The squares began to took shape during Daendels’ rule in early 19th century; Waterlooplein became the main parade and ceremonial square, while the Buffelsveld (buffalo field) was renamed Champs de Mars due to French influence, and used as a military exercise field. In 1818, during British rule in the East Indies under Stamford Raffles, the square’s name was changed into Koningsplein (King’s square) at the time the Governor-General’s residence moved to a new palace, now known as Merdeka Palace. The colonial government built athletic tracks, a stadium and sports facilities on Koningsplein. The locals called the square Lapangan Gambir, after the name of a plant which grows around the field. The Lapangan Gambir became the location of Pasar Gambir, a Pasar Malam (night market) fair and festival to commemorate Queen Wilhelmina’s birthday in 1906. Since 1921 Pasar Gambir was held annually, turning into the annual modern Jakarta Fair. The square’s name remained the same throughout colonial Dutch East Indies era until the Japanese invasion in 1942.
