Jakarta's former name was Batavia (until 1949) when it was de facto the capital of the Dutch East Indies, the former Dutch colony.

Today Jakarta has a population of about 10 million people, making it one of the most populous city in Southeast Asia.

Jakarta's metropolitan area, known as Greater Jakarta or Jabodetabek (short for Jakarta + Bogor + Depok + Tangerang + Bekasi cities) is among the largest urban agglomerations on the planet, with a population of 31 million people.

Official language is Indonesian (Bahasa Indonesia). But Greater Jakarta is a melting pot, an immigration magnet and home to people from all over Indonesia and Southeast Asia, with significant numbers of Sundanese, Javanese, Betawi as well as Bataks.
