Adipura Monument Park

(Taman Tugu Adipura)

This small park displays an honor the City of Jambi was given for obtaining a certain level of cleanliness and management competency. All cities in Indonesia can obtain this honor if they meet certain criteria. In the years 1987; 1988; 1989; 1991; 1992; and 1993, the City of Jambi was recognized as meeting the government of Indonesia’s standards of cleanliness and management competency. Those dates are reflected on the monument.

The picture at the top of this post shows the Jambi city shield, with the word “kotamadya.” The word “Kotamadya” comes from two words:

1) kota, meaning “city”; and

2) madya, meaning “middle” (a Javanese word).

This special word was used prior to 1999 to specify a centralized and middle-sized city—larger than a town, but not yet a city of a million people. In the City of Jambi there are still a few remaining remnants of where the word “kotamadya” can still be found. One is here at Taman Tugu Adipura, and another instance of this word being used can be found at Taman Murni.

Correction: Taman Murni was leveled and Freedom of the Press monument was inaugurated at that park in Feb. 2012.
