In 1905 the Batavia Municipal office was located in the Stadhuis, the present Jakarta Museum at the Fatahillah Square. However, in 1919 the office was moved to the building which has now become the office of the Governor of Jakarta. In 1982 a highrise building was constructed right behind the Governor’s office facing Jalan Kebon Sirih, which houses the Jakarta’s Provincial Parliament. The Jakarta Governor’s office and the Jakarta Provincial Parliament building are therefore adjoining.
