From Lonely Planet Indonesia 2003:
"...The old town of Batavia, now known as Kota, was once the hub of Dutch colonial Indonesia. It contained Coen's massive shoreline fortress, the Kasteel, and was surrounded by a sturdy defensive wall and a moat. Much of this one-time grandeur has now rotted, crumbled, or been buldozed away, but Taman Fatahillah, Kota's central cobblestone square, is still reminiscent of the area's heyday..."
The pic is Stasiun Jakarta Kota, a train station, taken from Taman Fatahillah.
