Jakarta' Harbor

Tanjung Priok (also Tandjung Priok) is a subdistrict of North Jakarta, Indonesia. It hosts the city's main harbor of the same name. The port, Indonesia's busiest, is managed by national port company PT Pelindo.


Tanjung Priok became Jakarta's primary harbor in the late nineteenth century. It largely replaced the Sunda Kelapa (a fish market) area to the west, as that site became too small for the increased traffic resulting from the opening of the Suez Canal.
