Cianjur Regency is a regency (kabupaten) of West Java, Indonesia. The area of the regency is 3,840.16 km2 and its population at the 2010 Census was 2,171,281;[1] the latest official estimate (as at January 2014) is 2,335,024. The town of Cianjur is its capital. Northern parts of the regency form a valley (above the 'neck'), and are far more densely populated than southern regions. As such, a portion of the northern valley was briefly included in a definition of Greater Jakarta called Jabodetabekjur (jur for Cianjur).

Administrative Districts[edit]

Cianjur Regency is divided into 32 districts (kecamatan), listed below with their populations at the 2010 Census.[2]

Mount Padang[edit]

A terracing structure, although local people mention it as a pyramid, lies on Mount Padang, 31 kilometer from Cianjur through Warung Kondang. It is the biggest Megalithic Site in Southeast Asia.[3]
