Fatahillah Square, Jakarta

(2.8/5 based on 380+ reviews on the web)
Relive the Dutch period of Jakarta's history at Fatahillah Square, located on the eastern bank of the Ciliwung River and named after a prominent Indonesian national hero. Home to several notable museums, the square still preserves an atmosphere of the bygone colonial days, when this cobblestoned part of the city served as the center  of Dutch Indonesia. Don't miss a visit to the city's renowned history museum, located inside an 18th-century building that once housed the offices of the Dutch East India Company. Many Indonesian rebels met a gruesome faith in the square in front of this building, where public floggings and executions often took place. For Fatahillah Square and beyond, use our Jakarta holiday planner to get the most from your Jakarta vacation.

  • Suitable for families. It takes a 10 to 15 mins talk around the square. Can't seem to find a reason to stay and enjoy ourselves. The bicycles are in neon colours, too many street artists, same things ...  more »
  • It is a good outing for a couple of hours. A lot of entertainers, school kids eager to talk to foreigners and of course the open space in between the colonial buildings offer great photo opportunities...  more »
