Indonesia - Jembatan Kota Intan 哥打因坦拖曳橋


Stamp Issue : 1995-08-19 

Kota Intan Drawbridge (Jembatan Kota Intan) is a small Dutch wooden drawbridge that spans across the great canal of Ciliwung River which is located in Kali Besar, in Jarkata, Indonesia.
It was built in the 17th century, during the development of Batavia (modern day Java) by the Dutch East India Company. Nevertheless, the shape and style were unchanged, but its name was changed to "Juliana-Bernhard". After Indonesia's declaration of independence, its name changed to Jembatan Kota Intan.
