Believed to be the largest of its kind in Asia, this Bird Market at Jalan Pramuka sees up to 200 traders every day selling local and imported tropical birds. Originally located at the Pasar Senen complex, it moved here in 1974. As the sale of exotic, endangered birds is illegal here, visitors can only expect to find various breeds of pet and show birds. Many of these are trained and sport vibrant colors. Look out for the crooning perkutut, the pride and joy of the Javanese folk.
