Pasar Tanah Abang Jakarta Pusat


Tanah Abang Market used to be called Saturday Market because it is only open every Saturday. The market that is now a center of textile goods sales was founded Yustinus Vinck on August 30, 1735. The market was devastated in the tragedy Chineezenmoord in 1740.
Year 1881, Tanah Abang Market gradually recovered. The market opened two days, Saturday and Wednesday.
The velocity of money in the market that is now located in the Central Jakarta area is increasing. The development of Tanah Abang Station also made the textile business increasingly wriggling.
Tanah Abang market is finally opened every day, semi-permanent buildings have been transformed into multi-storey buildings that can accommodate hundreds or even thousands of traders.
