    Here you could see the best quote from Soe Hok Gie and many lovely Dutch statues style in a dramatic pose. Good for photography hunting especially in black and white composition.  more »

    This is not a cemetery. its an ex-cemetery. Government has removed all body to another placed, and the the Headstone and Gravestone left. its a nice alternative vacation in Jakarta

    You can find colonial tombstone/memorial dated from 1700s up until 1960s here as some of the corpses were already relocated to somewhere else. Most of them are the Dutch, but there are some American, British, and Chinese-Indonesian too. Some are really well-kept but expect to see many deteriorating sculpture/tombstones. Near the entrance they display the caskets of Bung Karno and Bung Hatta. Sadly they don't put information or story even on the prominent person's tombstone so if you don't understand Dutch at all it will be quite disappointing. It is quiet here but during midday the heat might be really intense and near the closing hour the mosquitoes will start to upset you. It is still a nice place if you want to escape from the noisy city and admire the work of art after all.

    This is the oldest cemetry in Jakarta. If you want to explore the past of Batavia come to this place.

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.
