Cianjur Regency is a regency (kabupaten) of West Java, Indonesia. The area of the regency is 3,614.35 km2 and its population at the 2010 Census was 2,171,281;[2] the 2020 Census produced a total of 2,477,560[3] and the official estimate as at mid 2021 was 2,506,682.[4] 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 in the far northwest of the regency) was briefly included in a definition of Greater Jakarta called Jabodetabekjur (jur for Cianjur).

Administrative divisions[edit]

Cianjur Regency is divided into thirty-two districts (kecamatan), listed below with their areas and their populations at the 2010 and 2020 Censuses,[5][6] together with the official estimates as at mid 2021.[7] The table also includes the location of the district administrative centres, the number of villages (rural desa and urban kelurahan) in each district, and its post code.
