Banjarmasin

Banjarmasin (also known as Bandjermasin or Bandjarmasin) is the capital of South Kalimantan, Indonesia. It is located on a delta island near the junction of the Barito and Martapura rivers. As a result, Banjarmasin is sometimes called the "River City".

The Sabilal Muhtadin Mosque, located along the Martapura riverfront, is a major landmark in the city. Completely built in 1979, the mosque accommodates thousands of worshippers on Friday prayers.

A state university (Universitas Lambung Mangkurat, UNLAM) is also located in the town. A floating marketplace, where buyers and sellers meet each other using boats, is located on the western outskirts of town. It is a traditional market and is considered one of city's identity mark for years.

 

Banjarmasin has long been renowned as a center for gem trading, particularly rare diamonds and rubies. An informal network with international connections exists, which also supports the large domestic Indonesian trade in rare diamonds. Banjar's diamonds are especially known for their exquisite brilliance. In recent times, however, many of Indonesia's large diamond stones have been traded out of the country.

The nearest International airport is Syamsudin Noor International Airport, located about 25 km from the center of the city of Banjarmasin and is located 10 kilometers south-west of Banjarbaru. To make arrangements for a taxi from Airport to city centre, contact one the taxi operators or travel agents that have counter in the Airport.
