Hayam Wuruk Street
August 12, 2022
Jalan Hayam Wuruk (formerly Molenvliet Oost, translation: "Molenvliet Timur") is the name of a street in Jakarta that connects Kota Tua Jakarta and Kota Baru. In the middle of the road flows Ciiiwung River. This road was built in 1648 by the community leader Phoa Beng Gan. Molenvliet Oost means the road on the east side of the river. From Noordwijk there was no access to this road because it was still filled with private settlements (1800). Along the road stand many buildings such as Beynon's house, the Ernst Hotel, and van der Parra's estate.
