Kramat Jati, East Jakarta
The Condet Area, known for its Betawi culture and agriculture, is located in Kramat Jati.
Condet is an area in Kramat Jati which is roughly located in three kelurahan: Batu Ampar, Bale Kambang, and Kampung Tengah. The area is known for its fruit production and a small enclave for Betawi people, the indigenous people of Jakarta. Before 1965 most of the land in this area was used for agriculture and fruit orchards. As Jakarta started to grow, Condet became affected by the modern development, threatening the preservation of Betawi culture within the area.
The oldest written source about Condet is found in National Archives of the Republic of Indonesia. On April 25, 1716, Prince Aria Pourobaya made his will and bestowed upon his wife Ratoe Pourobaya "...ten big buffaloes walking on the land called Tsondet". In 1753, the area is known to be inhabited by Javanese and Makassarese. The owners of the land were Dain Matara, Prince Aria Pourobaya, Ratoe Pourobaya, and their families.
