Jembatan Pasar Ayam

Penjaringan Phone: Not Available


This is the only drawbridge spanning Kali Besar (The Great Canal) that still exists. Built in the 17th century to connect the Dutch fort and the British fort, it stands as a magnificent archetype of a Dutch-style drawbridge. It is so named because of a chicken market (pasar ayam in Bahasa Indonesia) that used to lie nearby. Even after having undergone a series of renovations, including one in the 1970s, the bridge still reveals clear signs of age. Now no longer functional, it remains as a historical landmark.
