Gedong Department van Oorlog or Department of War which by the people there called Sabahu Building because it is built on a land of sabahu (0.7 hectares), now has become the headquarters building Command.
The two buildings are located on Aceh street and Kalimantan street which is also the northern and eastern boundary of an open field. To the south is limited by Belitung Street and to the west is limited by Sumatera Road. This open field was originally a training ground for Dutch troops.
