Packed with a cornucopia of sightseeing opportunities, the historic town of Jatinegara lies in the eastern part of Jakarta. The area was cleared and developed in 1621 by Meester (Master) Cornelis, a Dutchman from a well-to-do family and was named in his honor. Now the district is home to a local produce market, a gemstone bazaar, several mosques, Buddhist temples, Hindu temples, churches, residential kampongs (villages, such as Utan Kayu, Kampung Melayu and Rawamangun) and business complexes.
