During the Dutch colonial era, it was named Buitenzorg (“without worries” in Dutch) and served as the summer residence of the Governor-General of the Dutch East Indies.

With several hundred thousand people living on an area of about 20 km (7.7 sq mi), the central part of Bogor is one of the world’s most densely populated areas.
