The grave of the first Chinese-Indonesian community leader in Batavia, with the title kapitan (captain), Souw Beng Kong (1580-1644), is located in a narrow alley off Gang Taruna, on the busy Jl. Pangeran Jayakarta, not far from the hectic Mangga Dua shopping district.
The meter-wide alley is rather difficult to find among the crush of mushrooming shop-houses along the business street, if visitors do not spot a signpost on the road. A plaque from former Governor Basuki “Ahok” Tjahaja Purnama was installed, declaring the historic ancient tomb a cultural heritage that must be protected and preserved by the people.
