Jakarta was known as Batavia during the colonisation of the Dutch. The centre of administration used to be in the north of Jakarta.

Now known as Kota or Kota Lama (old city), the old capital still boasts of Dutch-influenced architecture that stand gleaming under the sunset. 

The buildings, which were mainly governmental offices, now house most of Jakarta's past relics. (image by yennieyong)
