About Banten

Banten is the westernmost province on the Indonesian island of Java, and it is the last one on the west side of it. Its capital city is Serang. To the east, it is bordered by West Java and the Special Capital Region of Jakarta. The Sunda Strait separates Java from the island of Sumatra, and the Java Sea is to the north. The Indian Ocean is to the south. There is a lot of land in the province: 9,662.82 km2 (3,730.84 sq miles). It had a population of more than 11.9 million at the 2020 Census, up from more than 10.6 million at the 2010 Census. Until 2000, Banten was part of the province of West Java. It became its own province in that same year. The province is a way to get to the Indonesian island of Sumatra, which is next to it. They live in Banten in Sunda Islands, which is where they come from, and they have always had a little bit of a different way of life from the Sunda people in the West Java region. Recent years have seen big changes in the northern half, especially around Jakarta and the coast of the Java Sea. The southern half, which faces the Indian Ocean, has stayed more traditional. Years ago, the area that is now Banten was ruled by the Sunda kingdom of Tarumanagara. During the time after the Tarumanegara fell, Banten was ruled by a lot of Hindu-Buddhist kingdoms. These kingdoms were called Srivijaya and Sunda. There was a lot of Muslims in the area when the 15th century came. Islam was the main religion in the province by the late 16th century, when the Banten Sultanate was set up. Hinduism and Buddhism had been replaced by Islam. At the same time, European traders started to come to the area. The Portuguese were the first, then the British, and then the Dutch came in at the end. This is how it worked out: The Dutch East India Company (VOC) was set up to make sure the economy worked in this area. This led to a slow fall for Banten Sultanate in this area. During a meeting on Nov. 22, 1808, the Dutch Governor-General Herman Willem Daendels said that on Nov. 22 of that year, Banten had become part of Dutch East Indies. This was the start of direct Dutch rule in the area for the next 150 years. The Bantam Residency was the name of this area. During World War II, the Japanese invaded the Indies in March 1942. They stayed there for three years before surrendering in August 1945. For five years, the area was under Dutch control again. When the Dutch left in 1950, the new Indonesian government took over the area. Banten was taken over by the province of West Java. However, in 2000, the province of Banten was created because of a strong desire for independence. Banten is a very diverse province. People from many different ethnic groups live there, with the most common being the Bantenese people. So, the Sundanese language is the language of communication in the province, even though Indonesian is the official language. Javanese is also spoken by a lot of people who moved from Central or East Java to other parts of the country. The Baduy people live in the Lebak Regency. They speak the Baduy language, which is a very old form of the Sundanese language. However, most people in Banten can speak Indonesian as well as they can speak their second language. The name "Banten" comes from a lot of different places. katiban inten, which means "struck down by diamonds," is one of the first possible words for this word. There is a story behind this phrase: It comes from the Bantenase people, who used to be animists, but then changed their religion to Buddhism or Hinduism. People in Banten started to accept and recognise Islam after it started to spread in the area. This is how it works: People say that the spread of Islam in Banten is like a diamond that has been smashed. Hindu God Batara Guru Jampang travelled from east to west and arrived at a place called Surasowan. This is another story about Batara Guru Jampang (present-day Serang). When Batara Guru Jampang arrived in Surasowan, he sat on a rock, which was then called watu gilang, and prayed. The stone glowed, and King Surasowan was given it as a gift. If this country were surrounded by stars, it would have clear water all around it, it was said. The place is called "Banten" in Sundanese because it looks like a ring with diamonds on it. Banten may also come from the Indonesian word bantahan, which means "rebuttal." This is because the Bantenese people resisted the Dutch colonial government at the time. This is another possible origin for the name. The word "Banten" is thought to have been around long before the Banten Sultanate came into existence. River: Cibanten River is the name of a river that runs through the country. Cibanten Girang was the name of the higher plains on the banks of the Cibanten River. Banten Girang was the name of the lower plains (Upper Banten). Based on research done in Banten Girang, this area has been home to people since the 11th or 12th century. As far back as the 16th century, this area grew very quickly. The growth of settlements in Banten Girang spread to Serang and the northern coast. A long time later, Sunan Gunung Jati made it into a kingdom called Banten. This Sultanate used to control most of the land that was once part of the Sunda Kingdom in West Java. Sunda Kelapa, or Batavia, was taken by the Dutch, but Cirebon and the Parahiyangan area were taken by the Mataram Sultanate. The Dutch later turned the land that was once part of the Banten Sultanate into a "residence" (a place to live).
