Glodok Kota
Overview

After the bloody massacre of 1740, the Chinese community was confined to ghettos in an area outside the city walls now known as Glodok. Today, shop houses, traditional markets, hawker stalls and temples dot the enclave, retaining a familiar Chinese atmosphere. Pockets of shopping opportunities lying in the area include Glodok Market (a cluster of buildings selling information-technology products, electronic goods, hardware and general department-store merchandise) and an interesting shopping bridge linking Jalan Hayam Wuruk and Jalan Gajah. Sightseers should pay a visit to the two old Buddhist temples Vihara Dharma Bhakti and Da Shi Miao--at Jalan Kemenangan.
