Stand at the top of this tower and gaze over Kali Besar Bridge, Sunda Kelapa Harbor and Ciliwung River through the eyes of an eagle. The panoramic view gives visitors an idea of what it was like when guards watched over harbor activities during the Batavia era. The Uitkijk, as the Dutch called it, was built in 1839 as part of a fortress. It started its life as a defense tower and later served as a meteorological station. Admission is free.
