Overview

Lapangan Banteng lies in the city center, where the Irian Jaya Liberation Monument stands with his gigantic palms. The square has been known by a number of names, including Paviljoensveld, Waterlooplein (Waterloo Square) and Weltevreden. It served as the center of high-society gatherings during the Dutch era and later the site of a bus station. Today, it consists of a soccer field on one side and a pocket of greenery on the other. A leisurely walk affords sweeping views of Central Jakarta, including the Supreme Court and the Department of Finance.
