Long before Jakarta turned into a modern metropolis with skyscrapers, it was colonized by the Dutch in the 15th century. The Jakarta Old Town or Kota Tua Jakarta bears reminisce of the Dutch era, with its colonial architecture and historical references. The streets of the Old Town boasts of buildings and structures that date back to the colonial times, most of which are converted into museums today.
Also known as Old Batavia this relatively small area, covering 1.3 sq. km was once the most important administrative and business center of the nation. Though not all buildings are well-preserved it remains a charming tourist attraction today that gives a peek into Jakarta’s colonial history, culture and is also known for its busy night market.
