It can be reached by two main roads - Jalan Dr Saharto and Jalan Casablanca. The JAKARTA WAR CEMETERY is entered on the northern side by a short flight of steps leading into the Memorial building. The entrance faces the old civilian cemetery where hawkers from the local market often spill out, partly blocking access to the cemetery. The local name for the cemetery is Makam Perang Jakarta.
