Jakarta, the capital of Indonesia, has a rich history that spans over 400 years. The city was originally founded by the Dutch in the 17th century as a trading post, and was known as Batavia. Since then, Jakarta has undergone significant transformations, and has emerged as a modern metropolis with a vibrant and diverse culture.

During the Dutch colonial period, Jakarta was a major trading hub for spices and other commodities, and was known for its distinctive architecture and city planning. Many of the city’s historic buildings, such as the Old City Hall and the Dutch East Indies Company building, still stand as a testament to the city’s colonial past.
