Capt. Nemo's Nautilius Submarine Papermodel

Some details of the Nautilus as described by Verne are subject to interpretation and some may 
have been obscured in translation, but many are clearly stated. The largest portion of the information 
is found in the chapters titled "The Nautilus" (included in "The Man of the Seas" in incomplete translations)
, "All by Electricity", and "Some Figures". Additional information is scattered throughout the novel. Here's a summary of the details.
The Nautilus had a cylindrical hull 70 meters long and 8 meters wide. The double hull had tapered ends, 
as Nemo says to Aronnax, "like your cigar". (Nemo mentions the shape had already been adopted in 
London. This was the time of the "cigar ships".) The four bladed propeller was six meters in diameter 
with a pitch of 7.5 meters. When the Nautilus accidentally rammed the Scotia it produced a two-meter 
triangular hole. There was an ordinary rudder fixed to the stern and two diving planes fastened to the sides
 at the center of floatation. On the surface the Nautilus remained 90% underwater so its platform was 
0.8 meter above the water. The platform had a structure of "medium height" with inclined sides, at each 
end. Forward was the wheelhouse with a 2-meter-square interior and four windows, nearly a foot thick, 
through which the pilot could see in all directions. Aft was the powerful light. A recession amidships held 
the longboat, described later as a rising enough above the deck to sit on. The platform also had a railing. 
Aronnax gives somewhat conflicting descriptions of the hull, first saying it is clearly metal, not looking 
like a living beast at all, but later describes the overlapping hull plates as resembling scales or a reptile's

This temple is located at Kampung Pulo, the village of Cangkuang, sub-district of Leles, Garut district- West Java. The village of Cangkuang is surrounded by four huge mountains, namely Mt. Harumun, Mt. Kaledong, Mt. Mandalawangi and Mt. Guntur. The name Cangkuang for the temple is derived from the name of the village. The word ‘Cangkuang’ refers to a kind of pandanus furcatus plant family heavily growing in the grave yard of Mbah Dalem Arief Muhammad, the forefather of Kampung Pulo. The leaves of cangkuang are exploited to make sun hats, mats or cover sugar palm.

Cangkuang cultural preservation is located in a plain likely an island in the middle of a small lake (in Sundanese, called Situ), by which one should take the raft to get to the place. Beside the temple, there is also a cultural residence namely Kampung Pulo that becomes one of the cultural preservation subjects of that region. 

Cangkuang temple was discovered by the historical team of Leles on 9 December1996. The research team sponsored by Mr. Idji Htadji (CV. Harumun) was under the coordination of Prof. Harsoyo, Uka Tjandrasasmita (the leader of Islamic History and archeological institution), and the students of Bandung IKIP (Teacher Training Institute). The excavation carried out was inspired by the notes of Vorderman in his book of Notulen Bataviaasch Genotschap, published in 1893, saying that there were an old grave yard and a damaged statue in the village of Cangkuang. It is said that the discoveries are located in a hill of Kampung Pulo.
