Bandar Lampung (Lampung: Bandar Lampung in Lampungese.png , Kutak Bandarlampung, formerly Dutch: Oosthaven, lit. "Eastern Harbor") is the capital and largest city of the Indonesian province of Lampung. Located on the southern tip of Sumatra, Bandar Lampung was originally called Tanjungkarang–Telukbetung, since it was a unification of two major settlements in Lampung, before being renamed in 1983. [3]

Contents

The city proper and South Lampung Regency (which borders the city on its northern and eastern sides) are major transmigrasi recipients; in testimony thereof, it has become the fourth-largest city in the region of Sumatra, after Medan, Palembang and Batam. The city's area is about 197.22 km2, with a census population of 790,057 in 2005, 881,801 in 2010, 977,686 in 2015 and 1,166,066 in 2020. [4]

History

Bandar Lampung is the capital city of Lampung Province, before it was named Bandar Lampung, this city was named Tanjung Karang-Teluk Betung City. Historically, before becoming Bandar Lampung City, it was a combination of the two twin cities of Tanjung Karang and Teluk Betung City, the two twin cities were previously part of South Lampung Regency. This naming is because at that the city of Bandar Lampung consisted of the city of Tanjung Karang and city of Teluk Betung, in 1982 there was an expansion of the territory with the entry of three new districts [5] [6]

Early history

A report by the Banten regent William Craft to Governor-General Cornelis Speelman states that, on the basis of a description provided by Pangeran Aria Dipati Ningrat on 17 June 1682, "Lampung-Telokbetong at the edge of the sea is the seat of power of a Dipati Temenggung Nata Negara, with power over three thousand people". This date would later be adopted by the city administration as its official founding date. [7]

Teluk Betung in the 1930s

Under the Dutch colonial administration, 1912 Staatsblad 462 codified the city as being part and parcel of the Onderafdeling Telokbetong, composed of present-day Teluk Betung and its environs. The Onderafdeling's capital was Tanjung Karang, whilst Telukbetung itself served as the seat of government for the Karesidenan Lampung. [7]

Under Japanese occupation

During the Japanese colonial era, present-day Bandar Lampung was administered as a city (市, shi), led by a Japanese mayor (市長, shicho) who was assisted by an Indonesian deputy mayor (副市長, fuku-shicho). [7]

Post-Independence

Tanjung Karang and Telukbetung initially fell under the jurisdiction of South Lampung Regency, until a 1948 law consolidated the two and elevated them to independent city status. [7]
