OVERVIEW SURABAYA

Surabaya is Indonesia’s second-largest city and the capital of the province of East Java. It is located on the northern shore of eastern Java at the mouth of the Mas River and along the edge of the Madura Strait. As the main seaport and commercial center in the eastern region of Indonesia, Surabaya has become one of the largest cities in Southeast Asia. Today, Surabaya’s population is around three million, and the surrounding rural area houses at least 7 million.

Surabaya is home to the Eastern Armada, one of two in the Indonesian Navy. Its strong maritime heritage is also reflected with the Submarine Monument, a real retired Russian submarine, called Pasopati, that was converted into a museum ship in the city center. Suramadu Bridge is also one of the most remarkable achievement in Surabaya. Surabaya also has Mangrove Park as the object for tourism and also research.

This city is located in the equatorial region. Hence there are only two seasons: a very humid rainy season and a dry season. The minimum temperature in Surabaya is about 25 degree Celsius during the months of January, February and March. Usually the high temperature reaches to about 35 degree Celsius during the month of October.

Surabaya is a multi-ethnic city: foreign nationalities represented include Malaysian, Chinese, Indian, Arab, and European. In addition to Javanese and Maduranese natives, the city also has representatives of other Indonesian areas: Sunda, Minangkabau, Batak, Banjar, Balinese, and Bugis. They adhere to Islam. Other religions include Christianity, Hinduism, Buddhism, Confucianism. Most citizens speak a dialect of Javanese called Suroboyoan. A stereotype of this dialect concerns its equality and directness in speech. The usage of register is less strict than the Central Java dialect. However, as a multi racial city, most people speak the national language, Bahasa Indonesia. English is also widely spoken at major shops, hotels and universities.

Another internationally recognisedachievement is her success in turning Surabaya in to a clean and green city. Surabaya under Mayor Tri Rismaharini has become “Sparkling Surabaya”. From her time as Head of Surabaya Landscape and Cleanliness Department, she converted bare lands and gas stations into city parks. Green open spaces cover more than 20% of Surabaya land area and had been flood-freefor the last three years. Public participation in the environmental program has won the city many environmental awards as a pioneering eco-city. In 2012 Surabaya was awarded the“ ASEAN Environmentally Sustainable City Award”. Since 2006, Surabaya had received the Adipura Kencana, the highest environmental awards in Indonesia yearly.

HISTOGRAPHY SURABAYA

The earliest record of Surabaya was in the 1225 book Zhu fan zhi written by Zhao Rugua, in which it was called Jung-ya-lu, the ancient name of Surabaya. Ma Huan documented the early fifteenth-century visit of Zheng He’s treasure ships in his 1433 book Yingyai Shenglan: “after traveling south for more than twenty li, the ship reached Sulumayi, whose foreign name is Surabaya. At the estuary, the outflowing water is fresh”.

In the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries, Surabaya was a sultanate and a major political and military power in eastern Java. It entered a conflict with, and was later captured by, the more powerful Sultanate of Mataram in 1625 under Sultan Agung. It was one of Mataram’s fiercest campaigns, in which they had to conquer Surabaya’s allies, Sukadana and Madura, and to lay siege to the city before capturing it. With this conquest, Mataram then controlled almost the whole of Java, with the exception of the Sultanate of Banten and the Dutch settlement of Batavia.

The expanding Dutch East India Company took the city over from a weakened Mataram in November 1743. In consolidating its rule over Surabaya and, in time, the rest of East Java, the Dutch collaborated with leading regional magnates, including Ngabehi Soero Pernollo (1720 – 1776), his brother Han Bwee Kong, Kapitein der Chinezen (1727–1778) and the latter’s son, Han Chan Piet, Majoor der Chinezen (1759–1827), all from the powerful Han family of Lasem.

Surabaya became a major trading center under the Dutch colonial government, and hosted the largest naval base in the colony. Surabaya was also the largest city in the colony serving as the center of Java’s plantation economy, industry and were supported by its natural harbor. However, by
1920 a census recorded that Batavia has overtaken Surabaya’s population size. In 1917, a revolt occurred among the soldiers and sailors of Surabaya, led by the Indies Social Democratic Association. The revolt was firmly crushed and the insurgents given harsh sentences.

Japan occupied the city in 1942, as part of the occupation of Indonesia, and it was bombed by the Allies in 1944. After Japanese surrender at the end of World War II Surabaya was seized by Indonesian nationalists. The young nation soon came into conflict with the British, who had become caretakers of the Dutch colony after the surrender of the Japanese.

The Battle of Surabaya, one of the well-known battles of the Indonesian revolution, started after the Arek-Arek Suroboyo (Teenagers of Surabaya) assassinated the British Brigadier Mallaby on October 30, 1945 near Jembatan Merah (the “Red Bridge”), allegedly with a stray bullet. The Allies gave an ultimatum to the Republicans inside the city to surrender, but they refused. The ensuing battle, which cost thousands of lives, took place on November 10, which Indonesians subsequently celebrate as Hari Pahlawan (Heroes’ Day). The incident of the red-white flag (the Dutch flag at the top of Yamato Hotel’s tower that was torn into the Indonesian red-white flag) by Bung Tomo is also recorded as a heroic feat during the struggle of this city.
