In the past, this tower was built by the Dutch colonial government around 1839 and was known as Uitkijk. This tower served as a place to monitor ships entering and leaving the city of Batavia by sea. In addition, this tower was used as a customs office, which is a place to collect taxes on goods unloaded at Sunda Kelapa Harbor.
The harbormaster tower has a height of 12 meters and there are three floors that can be visited. on the first floor, there is an inscription stone for the arrival of a Chinese merchant in the 17th century. The stone inscription is a marker for the zero point of Batavia or Jakarta at that time. Going to the next floor, you can see a lot of glass boxes containing binoculars that are still original and are almost a century and a half. These binoculars were used to monitor ships. On the second floor, you will see many large windows typical of old buildings. Then then on the top floor is a place to monitor the ships passing through the trade route in and out of Batavia City. On the top floor, you can see the view around the Syahbandar Tower area, starting from the bridge, the first cinema, the Pantura monument, and the Maritime Museum.
