The City of Bogor (Indonesian: Kota Bogor) was once the capital of Sunda Kingdom (Indonesian: Kerajaan Sunda) and was known as Pakuan Pajajaranknown. When the Dutch took over, the town was included in an administrative division known as Buitenzorg during the Dutch East Indies era. After independence, the city became part of the Bogor Regency.
