  • The most ancient Protestant church in Jakarta.
  • Known by other names "Portugeesche Buitenkerk", named "buiten in the language of Netherlands meaning beyond", because at that time, the church building is located outside of the fortress city of Batavia.

Where to stay in Jakarta

A wealth of choices exists in Jakarta, a sightseeing destination in its own right and a gateway to the rest of the country. For luxury options, try the Lingkar Kuningan area, where new developments provide rooms with excellent views of the city. Head north to find more affordable hotels, offering comfortable rooms in local, non-chain establishments. Up in the Kemang district you'll find an abundance of backpacker and budget accommodations, such as hostels and rental apartments, in areas known for their small cafes, trendy bars, and nightlife.
