The broad summit of Tangkuban Parahu volcano is seen in this aerial view from the NW. The dashed line outlines an outer crater inside which a younger crater complex (dotted line) was constructed. Frequent phreatic eruptions have occurred during historical time from the central crater complex. Bukit Tunggul, an older volcano is the peak visible at the center of the horizon. Photo published in Taverne, 1926
