Fatahillah Square, Jakarta

3.0
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.
