Indonesia Pavilion

Indonesia's pavilion was designed by the architect of their Place of State to be very graceful. A temple gate and a seven-roofed shrine with four dragon-like stone lions at its base stood outside the main building. Inside, photographs illustrated the country's history, natural resources, and various aspects of life on the major islands of Bali, Java and Sumatra. Works of art, including more than 100 stylized puppets that were used in religious plays, were on display.
