Little information about Gedung Merdeka, was originally built facing the only famous street in Bandung, namely Jalan Braga. However, since the renovation in 1921, Gedung Merdeka practically faces the Asian-African Way today. Gedung Merdeka was once named the Societeit Concordia building, a place for gathering and celebrating the upper class layers of Bandung.

The Asia-Africa Road long before had the name Groote Postweg or Jalan Raya Pos. The road is the oldest protocol section in the city of Bandung. The name also follows the function and existence of the Post Office Building or the Post Office of the Great Era from the colonial era. The road was built in conjunction with the Anyer-Panarukan road project which connects the 1,000-kilometer inter-city postal city route on Java.
Pal or Zero Kilometer Bandung points are also on this road. The zero point is often associated with the center or the beginning of the development of the city, where the removal of the Bandung government in the Krapyak or Dayeuh Kolot area, was moved to this area in 1810 following the road that was being built. Also the location is close to the Cikapundung River as a source of urban development water.
