Constructed in 1628 and formerly called the Engelse Brug (the English bridge) this bridge used to connect the Dutch fort with the British fort. In 1938 the bridge was made into a drawbridge – the only one in Indonesia to allow boats to pass into the Great Canal, now named Pintu Besar. After Indonesia’s Independence it was renamed to Jembatan Kota Intan, but is no longer in use.
