Built by the VOC in 1628, the wooden draw bridge is remarkably in good condition. Goodness knows why its called "Kota Intan Bridge" ( Diamond City Bridge) as Jakarta is far from being a Diamond City . The DKI government should preserve this bridge. The younger generation should visit the bridge. A popular place visited by elderly tourists from Holland.

Take the transjakarta busway to Kota, from there it's a nice, short walk. Not only the bridge is worth to see, even better is the walk along the old channel to go there.

The Kota Intan Bridge is a rare survivor of the old Dutch town of Batavia. Built in 1628 it spans the Kali Besar Canal. It is also known as Chicken Market Bridge because a market use to be beside it. Nowadays the buildings on either side are a bit run down. The bridge seems well maintained, the canal below is a bit smelly and clogged with rubbish. You can easily find the bridge 500 metres away from the Old Town square in Kota.

If you're in the old town already and want the full experience you have to go to the bridge or if you're Dutch.

Unfortunately it's now closed off and badly maintained, so you can only get a good view from the bridge right next to it.

An integral part of every history-minded tourist's itinerary, this bridge is one of the few remaining examples of colonial Dutch civil engineering. It's surprisingly well maintained, presenting a striking contrast to its dilapidated surroundings. I would recommend a daytime visit, as the area seems unsafe after dark.

This is a Historical Bridge at North Part of Jakarta and this is the entrance to the Sunda Kelapa Harbour long time ago. This is a Draw Bridge which will be draw when some ship will enter the Sunda Kelapa Harbour. Location of this Bridge we Call Kali Besar Street and still part of the Old Town.

If you are into bridges then you may find it interesting so long as you don't mind it spanning an absolutely filthy canal. The leaning tower is nearby so if you are visiting there you can see it from the top, best view of the bridge without having to negotiate horrendous traffic to cross the road.

A complete nostalgia definitely a 5 for me, wherever the Dutch built its cities it would always be upgraded with a canal. However almost none of the other cities of its colonies, be it in South Africa or Suriname have the famed Holland style "ophaalbrug", it would be very nice if the bridge could be functioned as it was in past.

You can have a look at this nice old bridge but that is all you can do here. Nothing really extraordinary.

Kota Intan Bridge is a typical Dutch wooden bridge that still exist in the present day. The only remaining colonial drawbridge in Indonesia, Kota Intan was built by the Dutch in 1630. It looks similar to bridges built in Amsterdam. Nearby one can wonder along the Kalibesar Canal bank where it was the prosperous vein heart of the city until the turning of 20th century. The Kota Intan bridge is not used anymore but it was well renovated and it can be a stop on your way from Taman Fatahillah to Sunda Kelapa.
