  • guardiancitiesThis is @ijoeel and I'm sharing pictures of my lovely hometown #Jakarta this week for #GuardianJakarta. Sunda Kelapa is the old port of Jakarta located on the estuarine of Ciliwung River. It was the main port of Hindu Sunda Kingdom of Pajajaran. The port is situated in Penjaringan sub-district, of North Jakarta. Today the old port only accommodates pinisi, a traditional two masted wooden sailing ship serving inter-island freight service in the archipelago. Although it is now only a minor port, Jakarta had its origins in Sunda Kelapa and it played a significant role in the city's development.
