Kali Besar is an 18th-century canal built along the River Ciliwung. It connects the port to the old city of Batavia. Kali Besar translates to ‘Grand River’ and the canal is presently a part of Kali Krukut of the Tambora subdistrict. This channel once thrived with boats shuttling goods to and from the port. Kali Besar formed a crux for commerce in the area and was lined with houses of Batavia’s rich and famous.
This 18th-century canal connects Sunda Kelapa port to the Jakarta Old Town when commerce flourished. The beauty of Kali Besar can be seen on either side of the canal, populated with lush green palm trees and beautiful Dutch buildings. Present-day Kali Besar reflects vestiges of the bygone era, with the buildings in various stages of restoration.
