Fatahillah Square, Jakarta

3.8
Landmark · Tourist Spot
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.

  • The open space just feels so nice for some reason. The old buildings are so picturesque. Then there's the live music and the chaos of people paddling around in technicolored rental bicycles! Everyone and everything just exudes fun. I definitely wanna be back again at night, which is when they say it's all the more alive.
  • Super lively to just sit and chill hear in late afternoon. Vibrant vibe. Love this space!
