West Java (Indonesian: Jawa Barat; Sundanese: Jawa Kulon; acronym: Jabar), with a fast growing estimated population of roughly 45 million, is the most populous and most densely populated province of Indonesia, and parts of it comprise the suburban yet dense fringe of Jakarta. Bogor, a city in West Java, has the 2nd highest population density worldwide, while Depok and Bekasi are the 7th and 12th most populated suburbs in the world. Located on the island of Java, it is slightly smaller in area than densely populated Taiwan, but with nearly double the population. Its capital city and largest urban center is Bandung.
Famous quotes containing the word west:
“Every man is in a state of conflict, owing to his attempt to reconcile himself and his relationship with life to his conception of harmony. This conflict makes his soul a battlefield, where the forces that wish this reconciliation fight those that do not and reject the alternative solutions they offer. Works of art are attempts to fight out this conflict in the imaginative world.”
