Kota Intan Drawbridge In the 18th century, Kali Besar area was a very stylish residential neighborhood along the great canal of Cliliwung river. At the north end of the Kali Besar lays a small 17th century Dutch drawbridge, the last in the city, called the Kota Intan Drawbridge.
Sunda Kelapa Harbor This 500-year-old harbor area was a vital link to the markets of the outside world for the 15th Century kingdom of Pajajaran. Since then this port has belonged to the Portuguese and Dutch. Though little remains of bustling old Sunda Kelapa except the name, the harbor is still one of the most important calls for sailing vessels from all over Indonesia. The magnificent and brightly painted Makassar schooner called Phinisi are still an important means of transporting goods to and from the outer islands. This is one of the finest sights in Jakarta.
