Visiting traditional markets in Indonesia was one of my “must-visit” lists when I was in the country. One of the markets was Pasar Senen (Senen means Monday while pasar means market) in Jakarta. Pasar Senen is a heaven for foodies who collect food props and enjoy photography.

Banten Lama Grand Mosque west of Jakarta, built in 1566 by Sultan Maulana Yusuf, shows a mix of Hindu, Chinese, and Islamic influences. Unique characteristics include five-tiered roof made from teak-wood, and eight-sided minaret built in 1590, which once also served as a lighthouse. The minaret was designed by Hendrik Lucas Cardeel, a Dutch deserter who converted to Islam.  www.londoh.com

Jakarta is known by some as ‘The Big Durian’, likening the city to the large fruit distinctive for its size and strong odour.

Yet, within Jakarta is a culture and way of life that is unique to the city. Image by Alan Chan
