ENDE: SOEKARNO’s Exile: Birthplace of PANCASILA, The 5 Pillars of INDONESIA
About 700 meters from Soekarno's house, was a Breadfruit Tree that directly faced Ende Beach. It is known that Soekarno often sat here to contemplate under the tree whilst envisioning a united country that would be called Indonesia. Indonesia's First President claimed that it was on that very spot that the concept of Pancasila to be the philosophical foundation of the Republic of Indonesia was conceived. Pancasila is since recognized and accepted as the 5 Principles on which the Indonesian State and Nation are founded.
