Town plan of Bantam from Indiae Orientalis Navigationes, 1598-1613. (Petits Voyages). Banten, also written as Bantam, is a small port town located near the western end of Java. The town is close to the Sunda Strait through which important ocean-going traffic passes between Java and Sumatra. Formerly Old Banten was the capital of a sultanate in the area. It was strategically important and a major centre for trade, especially in peppers. The English, who started to sail to the East Indies from around 1600, established a permanent trading post in Bantam in 1603; the Dutch East India Company also established a trading factory at Bantam the same year. During the 17th century the Portuguese and Dutch fought for control of Bantam.
