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;[2] the latest official estimate (as at 2015) is 2,243,904.[3] 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 (consisting of Cugenang, Pacet, Sukaresmi and Cipanas districts) was briefly included in a definition of Greater Jakarta called Jabodetabekjur (jur for Cianjur).
