On May 12, 1998, after mounts of tension, the army fired live ammunition onto a group of students at Trisakti University. This resulted in 3 days of rioting as ma

Jakarta back then
The Portuguese arrived in Indonesia in 1522 and at that Sunda Kelapa was a bustling port in Jakarta, which was part of the Pajajaran dynasty (the last Hindu Kingdom of West Java). The port is located north of the current modern city. In a span of 5 years, 1527, the Portuguese had developed a strong foothold in the city but were later driven out by the Muslim saint, Sunan Gunungiati, the leader of the Demak.

Jakarta is situated close to the equator; hence, the year round climate is generally tropical, hot and humid. Generally, average temperatures are almost the same in January as well as July at approximately 28°C. Temperature variation during the day is also not a lot – it ranges from a low of 24°C to a high of 31°C.
