The Southeast Indies trading company, VOC (Vereenigde Oostindische Compagnie) is a Dutch trade alliance who monopolized the trading in Asia in 1602-1799. Indonesia also had history with VOC, where VOC colonized the kingdom area in Java, Sumatera, and Maluku on the 16th century.

Until now, there are still some VOC historical heritages in Indonesia, one of them is Galangan VOC (galangan: shipyard) located in Penjaringan, North Jakarta. Galangan VOC was used by the Dutch as VOC’s head office. This building was built around the year of 1628, it was also the warehouse for shipyard goods at Onrust Island, Thousand Islands. Galangan VOC was once lied at the seashore and used as garage for big ships that had to sail for months or even years. Some small ships were also made in this place.

Now, this two-story building that owned by a private has a restaurant inside. The restaurant has a full-of-history ambience with some photos of Batavia in Dutch colonialization era. This building is also a cultural heritage so the owner is not allowed to demolish this building and should keep the original form. For you who want to know more about Batavia history, this place is the right choice for you.
