BOGOR BOTANIC GARDENS ANNIVERSARY
Bogor Botanic GardenS, known as Kebun Raya Bogor (KRB). Regarded as one of the finest public gardens in Indonesia, the Bogor Botanic Gardens is a magnificent site covering an area of 87 hectares (about 217.5 acres) and filled with wonderful plants, flowers and trees. It was founded in 1817 by Casper Georg Carl Reinwardt, a German who studied in Holland and moved to Indonesia where he became the Director of agricultural business, arts and sciences for Java and the neighbouring islands. To this day, the park continues to garner international acclaim as one of the finest gardens in the region. Each year it celebrates its founding with a programme of special exhibitions, seminars, workshops and presentations.
The Gardens are located in the city center and adjoin the presidential palace compound of Istana Bogor. The largest garden in Java contains 13,983 different kinds of trees and plants of various origin. The geographic position of Bogor means it rains almost daily, even in the dry season. This makes the Garden an advantageous location for the cultivation of tropical plants.
