PREMIUM It is 11 a.m. when the sun shines throughout the thick, ancient white walls of the buildings surrounding Fatahillah Square.

Behind these walls, thousands of historical stories and events are summed up without any words.

The area is known as Kota Tua, which used to be the center of Batavia, a trade hub of the Dutch East India Company (VOC) in the 17th and 18th centuries.
