Known as a fortified commercial center of the Gowa Regency in the 16th Century, Somba Opu Fort bears the marks of history situated in Makassar, South Sulawesi, Indonesia. The area surrounding the Benteng Somba Opu (Indonesian for Fort Somba Opu) has been developed into a recreation park (housing relics from the Sowa kingdom), and a museum (displaying historical objects of the Sultanate of Gowa) along with the Gowa Discovery Amusement Park. The Somba Opu Fort is, thus, an ideal place for a day-outing with the young ones in tow.
The Somba Opu museum and park stands testimony to the colonial style built palaces of then rulers of the Gowa Dynasty and exhibits few very rare unearthed artefacts in the park museum compound and other antique objects inherited by the Gowa Regency. Bordered by the River Jeneberang originating from Mount Bawakaraeng, the forted complex covered about 1500 hectares of area, only a few meters south from the river. Benteng Somba Opu was once the trade center for spices and other goods, used by the traders of Asia, Indonesia and the Europe region.
