Port of Jambi
Cruising and Travel

The Port of Jambi has a long and rich history, remnants of which remain. Located about 26 kilometers downstream from today’s city, the old harbor area covers over 1500 hectares. Called Maura Jambi, the site contains the largest archaeological complex in Sumatra, complete with a small museum. Visitors can reach the old harbor by waterbus or chartered boat from the City of Jambi.

The full scope of the archaeological site has not yet been discovered, but three important structures have been completed: Tinggi Temple, Gumpung Temple, and Kedaton Temple. Maura Jambi contains a fine 13th Century Prajnaparamita statue. Restoration efforts must compete with ever-increasing agricultural activities.
