What Is the Capital of Indonesia?

The capital of the Republic of Indonesia is Jakarta, which is a large city located on the northern coast of Java. As of 2014, it is home to over 9 million people as well as the majority of Indonesia's largest businesses and the Indonesian government.

Jakarta is rather diverse, from its residents with different cultural backgrounds and lifestyles to its buildings. In Jakarta, nearly any kind of housing can be found, from modern high-rise buildings and hotels to basic shelters in the poor sectors. These shelters are constructed with any available materials and do not have access to running water or sewage systems.
