Jakarta. Tambora is infamous for being fire-prone and the most-densely populated subdistrict in the capital. Located at the heart of the old Batavia civilization or what we know as West Jakarta today, Tambora has a population of 213,677 people and a density level of 39,496 per kilometer square.
There have been reports of raging fire in Tambora neighborhoods almost every year.
This area is often dubbed biang macet where not a single day passes without traffic congestion due to poor planning as slums growing and forming.
So it was a very rare sight when Tambora became very quiet and calm during one morning earlier this week.
