Cianjur is a city in the West Java province of Indonesia, and is the capital of Cianjur Regency. The city of Cianjur is located along one the main roads between Jakarta (120 km in the northwest) and Bandung (60 km to the east). The population is about 165,420. Because of its location, some of Cianjur's residents commute to work either in Bandung or in Jakarta.
The road on which Cianjur is located used to be the main (extremely busy) road from Jakarta to Bandung but was in effect replaced as the main road link between these two main cities when the Jakarta-Bandung tollroad was fully completed in 2005.
