Jawa Barat (German West Java ) is a province on the Indonesian island of Java . It is bordered to the west by the city of Jakarta and the province of Banten , which was separated from Jawa Barat in 2000, and to the east by Jawa Tengah . In 2015, 46.6 million people lived in the province, making it the most populous in the country.

The majority of the population of the densely populated province consists of Sundanese , around 94% of whom profess Islam. The largest cities are the capital Bandung , Bogor , Depok and Bekasi in the greater Jakarta area and the former sultanate capital Cirebon .

Jawa Barat is the most industrialized province in Indonesia. It benefits from the proximity to the capital Jakarta. Important branches of the economy include oil and gas processing and the textile industry. Tourism also plays an important role, especially on the beaches of the north and south coast. Bogor with its botanical garden and Cirebon are the most famous sights.

The region was Islamized in the 15th and 16th centuries and became one of the earliest places where Europeans settled. At first the province belonged to the Sultanate of Mataram and was gradually placed under Dutch colonial administration. The capital Bandung belonged to the Dutch colony from 1677, the more remote areas only in the 19th century. After the Japanese occupation in World War II , Jawa Barat became a province of the now independent Indonesia in 1949.
