Kota Intan Bridge

Recommendation by Lemi

Painting the town redder, Kota Intan Bridge’s maroon steel frame rises tall, sturdy, and completely frozen. In its heyday, mercantile ships traversing the canal had to pass the bridge. This gave Kota Intan a significant role in transactions at the Sunda Kelapa port (the main shipping hub in pre-colonial times). Vehicles or pedestrians can no longer cross over, but tourists frequent the site for its lore and quaint location. It is the only surviving Dutch drawbridge in Indonesia, in full view from the much newer Jalan Tiang Bendera.
