Central Jakarta (Indonesian: Jakarta Pusat) is one of the five administrative cities (kota administrasi) which form the Special Capital Region of Jakarta. It had 902,973 inhabitants according to the 2010 census[2] and 1,056,896 at the 2020 census;[3] the official estimate as at mid 2022 was 1,107,357, comprising 556,040 males and 551,317 females.[1] Central Jakarta is not self-governed and does not have a city council, hence it is not classified as a proper municipality.

Central Jakarta is the smallest in area and population of the five cities of Jakarta. It is both the administrative and political center of Jakarta and Indonesia. Central Jakarta contains a number of large international hotels and major landmarks such as Hotel Indonesia.
