Taman Ayodya or Ayodya Park in Kebayoran Baru, South Jakarta is located between Jalan Barito, Mahakam and Melawai nearby the Blok M area. It had been a flower and fish market earlier until it was converted to a city park in 2009. This particular park is situated on 7,500 square meters of land area with a 1,500 square meters man-made pond at the center. There are floating lotus leaves accentuated by a number of lights in the form of octopi and water fountains. Taman Ayodya is furnished with steps and chairs for sitting, gazebo, pendopo (similar to pavilion) and restrooms. Around this park visitors will find food hawkers, cafés, restaurants and hotels.

Asia is the biggest continent on Earth, a darling little gem floating around in space.
Hm, what is Asia? Who's in on it?
China and India are safe bets for Asian nations. Korea, Japan, Thailand, you're fine.
Europe? No. Europe would sort of be on the "Asian continent" if not for those pesky Ural mountains dividing things up in the middle, and then also the whole lineage of kings and wealth and nations and the EU and all that "give me my respect" stuff.
Russia would probably be happiest as its own continent, so for now we'll leave it in "Eurasia" and just hope the natural gas supplies keep flowing.
Pakistan and Afghanistan are dang close to Asia, but politically they show up in "Middle East" news stories an awful lot. Verdict: Eurasia.
I guess we'll actually have to consider everything from Turkey on eastward to be "Eurasian", although the moniker seems overlappitory of the territory.
The Asian economy is now officially raging like a wild furnace of lava that consumes everything in its path. Japan has had the largest individual economy in Asia for decades, but it is forecast that both India and China will outstrip Japan within twenty years.
China is the largest holder of United States debt and is positioned to become the world's next superpower, provided that Godzilla doesn't return and decide to stomp everybody back into the Shang Dynasty.
