Sunda Kelapa, better known as Pasar Ikan
(meaning fish market) is located at the
mouth of the Ciliwung River. The fish
catch of the day was auctioned in the early
morning at the old fish market. The street
leading to it was lined with shops selling all
sorts of shells, dehydrated turtles, lobsters
and mostly everything the seafarer might need.
This 500-year-old harbor area was a vital link to
markets of the outside world for the 15th
century kingdom of Pajajaran. It was formerly
the harbor town of Sunda Kelapa where the
Portuguese traded with the Hindu Kingdom of
Pajajaran in the early 16th century. Since than
this port has belonged to the portuguese and Dutch.
