On May 18, 1817, Governor General GAGP van der Capellen formally established a Botanical Garden in the City of Bogor, then called Buitenzorg (a Dutch word which means `not to worry’).
This garden is nowadays known as Bogor Botanical Gardens in English, and Kebun Raya Bogor in the native language. Located 60km south of Central Jakarta, Indonesia, the Indonesian Institute of Sciences currently operates this garden.
The Garden, which is adjacent to the presidential palace compound of Istana Bogor is located in the city center.
Approximately 47 hectares of land around the former Samida and the Bogor Palace were used to set up this garden.Places nearby:
