Bogor (Sundanese: ᮘᮧᮌᮧᮁ, Dutch: Buitenzorg) is a city in the West Java, Indonesia. It is 60 kilometers (37 mi) south of Jakarta, the capital of Indonesia. More than 1 million people live in it.[3]

Bogor was the capital of the Sunda Kingdom. It was called Pakuan Pajajaran or Dayeuh Pajajaran. It was also the summer residence of the Governor-General of the Dutch East Indies.

Because it often rains in Bogor, the city is called Kota Hujan (English: "Rain City")
