It is thought that the name "Banjarmasin" is a corrupted version of "Bandar Masih" (Port Masih). "Masih" originates from the Ngaju language. Oloh Masi refers to the coastal dwelling Malay population. There is speculation that Patih Masih, who ruled the port and the surrounding villages, was not a real name but instead a nickname. This was used by the population from the region, specifically the Dayaks who lived in the interior and visited the port regularly to trade. Some even eventually settled in the port. They eventually contributed to the culture of the Banjar people whose culture is a mixture of Javanese, Malay, and Dayak cultures.
European archeologist H. Kupper discovered several prehistoric sites around the region in 1939 and found implements such as choppers and other stone tools. Most of the artifacts found around the region and the province show signs of Neolithic culture. Migration from mainland Asia to Borneo may have been common when they were connected by the Sunda Shelf. Many stone tools were found in Awang Bangkal, 50 kilometres (31 mi) from the city.
Until the early 15th century, there were few written records found from the region. Outside records indicate it was home to several kingdoms such as Tanjungpuri, which was theorized to have been founded by Malay people from Srivijaya, and Negara Daha and Dipa founded by Javanese from Majapahit. Hinduism and Buddhism entered the region between the first and 15th centuries. There are two candi (temple) left in the region; Candi Laras and Candi Agung.There is also a native kingdom, which was thought to be the oldest kingdom in the entire archipelago, Nan Sarunai, founded by the Ma'anyan people. This kingdom was believed to be exist based on a Ma'anyan folk song called "Usak Jawa", which was thought to tell the story of the Majapahit conquest of the kingdom, and several carved stone tombs. However, the existence of this kingdom is disputed.
The history of Banjarmasin as a place generally began during the founding of the Sultanate of Banjar. According to folk stories and the Hikayat Banjar , Sukarama, the fourth king of Negara Daha, wanted his grandson, Raden Samudra, to be his successor in the kingdom instead of his direct son Prince Tumenggung. Prince Tumenggung later banished Raden Samudra and tried to reclaim the throne for himself. Raden Samudra fled to the region that would later be known as Banjarmasin. From there, he met Patih Masih, who controlled a port in the region. Under Samudra's leadership, the port grew into a town which would be called Bandar Masih ('Port Masih'). I. The sultanate became more reliant on the Demak to the point it was considered their protectorate. However, between 1546 and 1550, as conquests and the spice trade enriched the sultanate, it became independent and stopped sending tributes to Java.Tumenggung, who disliked Samudra's growing power, wanted to invade the town. To defend himself, Samudra allied with the Demak Sultanate, which agreed to help him. In return he would have to convert to Islam if he won. With the help of expeditionary forces from Demak, Samudra defeated the Tumenggung forces and proclaimed the Banjar Sultanate. He changed his name to Sultan Suriansyah
The first contact between Europeans and the Banjar people in the region came through trade Since 1596, this mostly took place in Banten. European traders, largely Dutch, did not bother visiting the port until they were banned from Banten by its local rulers. As the result, these traders resorted to attacking ships from other countries, including ships under the Banjar Sultanate, to steal nutmeg. This did not impress the sultan, who later took revenge against a Dutch ship visiting Banjarmasin on 17 July 1607 by hijacking it and massacring the crew. This hijacking and killing happened several times between 1603 and 1636. It ceased when trade agreements were reached, which put the Dutch East India Company in control of the nutmeg trade from the sultanate and gave it a monopoly over trade in Banjarmasin. The company was expelled in 1638, however, after the sultan waged a war against the Dutch and burned much of the company's possessions around the port.
Like the Dutch, an English company was expelled from the region in 1707 after a treaty had been agreed upon in 1698. The region was under British control after the Napoleonic Wars, but was ceded to the Dutch East Indies Company under the Treaty of London. II, coupled with a dispute over resource control of coal mines, for example, resulted in a war between the sultanate and the Dutch East Indies Company which abolished the sultanate in 1863. The war continued until 1905 under an emergency government set up by the sultanate called Pagustian. The last resistance was put down with the capture of Queen Zaleha in 1906. The war also resulted in the migration of Banjar people from Borneo who formed communities in Sumatra, Singapore, and Malaysia.A succession crisis between Sultan Adam and Tamjidillah
When World War II broke out, the city was occupied by Japanese forces under the Imperial Japanese Army. After the Battle of Banjarmasin, control was transferred to the Imperial Japanese Navy. Locals described Japanese rule under the navy as harsher compared to the army. This led many people to escape to Java, which remained under army rule. The city was liberated by Australian forces in September 1945. The return of Dutch rule, however, was opposed by the people and resulted in four years of war between Indonesian nationalists and the Royal Netherlands East Indies Army. This ended with the Dutch recognition of Indonesia in 1949. The city was briefly assigned as the capital of Great Dayak federal state before being absorbed into a single Kalimantan province. It later became the capital city of the newly formed South Kalimantan province.However, because of frequent flooding, there was a plan to relocate the provincial capital city to Banjarbaru. This did not fully materialize until recently. It was granted city status by Indonesian government in 1959 based on Law Number 27 of 1959.
On 23 May 1997, the city witnessed a riot caused by friction between supporters of the United Development Party and Golkar. The riot later developed into looting, which targeted Chinese and Christian minorities and several shopping malls.The riot today is known by locals as Jumat Kelabu or Grey Friday.

The return of Dutch authorities however, was rejected by majority of native population, including in Borneo, resulting in various regional armed conflicts between Royal Netherlands East Indies Army and Indonesian nationalist forces. Allied military forces in Borneo were in a strong position after an early conflict in August 1945, and were able to pacify local nationalist uprisings and impose a blockade to prevent military aid and exchange in personnel from nationalist strongholds in Java and Sumatra. Later, nationalists with connections to Borneo were able to breach the military blockade to provide information of revolutionary events in Java and Sumatra, declaring Kalimantan as inseparable part of the new Indonesian republic.
BRT Banjarbakula, also informally known as "Tayo bus", is a bus rapid transit (BRT) system serving Greater Banjarmasin metropolitan area, encompassing Banjarmasin, Banjarbaru, and parts of Banjar Regency in Indonesia. It comprises three routes and more than 37 bus stops as of 2019. After several months of trials with free service, it launched on 14 August 2019 to coincide with the celebration of 69 years since the creation of South Kalimantan province. The local government plans to expand the system to 6 routes and a total of 112 bus stops, encompassing the entire Banjar regency, Tanah Laut regency, and Barito Kuala regency; covering the entire metropolitan area with service. The government is also considering handing operations to a private firm in 2021 to boost its development. As of September 2020, recruitment of new drivers for the service was stalled because of the COVID-19 pandemic, hampering route and fleet expansion needed to keep up with demand.
