Indonesia's strategic sea-lane position fostered inter-island and international trade, including links with Indian kingdoms and China, which were established several centuries BCE. Trade has since fundamentally shaped Indonesian history.

[1]

Among the most powerful and enduring early kingdoms was Srivijaya, which ruled much of Indonesia and peninsular Malaysia from the seventh to the fourteenth century with support from China and the Orang Laut ("men of the sea") who originated from Peninsular Malaysia and were perhaps the region’s best sailors and fighters. [1] Eighth century records are marked by the development of a new teaching, the Mantranaya School of Indonesia, as taught by Indian master Vajrabodhi, who stayed as an honored guest in both Srivijaya and Java, and accepted Javanese native Amoghavajra as his disciple.

By the 14th century, eastern Java saw the rise of the Hindu Kingdom Majapahit and its chief minister from 1331 to 1364, Gadjah Mada, was able to gain control of much of what is present-day Indonesia. [1] Majapahit is last great Hindu kingdom in Indonesia at 14th century. [1]

In 1814, Sir Thomas Raffles, the British ruler of Java Island, discovered the site after being abandoned in the 14th century following the decline of Buddhism in Indonesia. [1] From the 14th century, the main factor was the spread of Islam to the maritime areas of Southeast Asia, overrunning Malaysia, Indonesia, and most of the islands as far as the Philippines. [1]

If we accept the establishment of Hinduism from the Taruma Kingdom in the 4th century, and was supplanted peacefully by Islam in the 14th century, Hinduism has had an indelible influence on the culture of Indonesians for 10 centuries before the establishment of Islam. [1] Spanish era Further adherence to Hinduism was superseded by the advent of Islam brought to the archipelago By Indonesian, Malay, and Arab missionaries in the 14th century, as well as the arrival of Christianity with the Spaniards in 1521.

Right into the 14th Century, Singapore was an important port that was used for transactions between the Chinese and the Malays in those days, and subsequently after the fall of the Srivijaya, Temasek was alternatively claimed by both the Majapahit and the Siamese (which Siam was the former name of modern Thailand).

Our formal history book tell us that the oldest Hindu kingdom in Indonesia was Kutai Kingdom di East Kalimantan, 4 century AD. But when we find a new site which is predicted to be older than 4 century AD, most of the time we identified it as as Hindu sites. [1] Portuguese kingdom later united with the Kingdom of Spain.

Austronesian people, who form the majority of the modern population, are thought to have originally been from Taiwan and arrived in Indonesia around 2000 BCE. From the 7th century CE, the powerful Srivijaya naval kingdom flourished bringing Hindu and Buddhist influences with it. [1] Islam as a rule present in Indonesia around the 12th century, but actually had already entered Islam to Indonesia in the 7th century AD. At that time there was already a busy shipping lane and internationally through the Malacca Strait which connects the Tang dynasty of China, the Srivijaya empire in Southeast Asia and the Umayyads in Western Asia since the 7th century.

At that time there has been a busy shipping lanes and the international nature through the Strait of Malacca linking the Tang Dynasty in China, the Srivijaya in Southeast Asia and West Asia Umayyad dynasty in 7th century. [1]

In the 14th century, Srivijaya was losing its influence and faced threats from various corners of the Malay Archipelago. [1] By the 14th century, Srivijaya had become a Majapahit vassal state. [1] In the 14th century, Prince San Nila Utama from Palembang, Srivijaya visited the areas on a hunting trip and came upon what he believed to be a lion. [1] By the 14th century, the empire of Srivijaya had already declined, and Singapore was caught in the struggle between Siam (now Thailand ) and the Java-based Majapahit Empire for control over the Malay Peninsula. [1] The Srivijaya Empire of Sumatra (7th to 14th Centuries), the Majapahit Empire of eastern Java (14th to 16th Centuries), and then the Muslim states (following the 16th Century) held control over Kalimantan at different points of time. [1] Whatever the reason for the move, an eastern Javanese empire Javanese empire prospered in the 10th Century and actually attacked and occupied Srivijaya for two years 990-A.D. Sailendra - The Shailendra dynasty was the name of a notable Indonesian dynasty that emerged in 8th century Java whose reign marked a cultural renaissance in the region. [1] The earliest evidence of Islamised populations in Indonesia dates to the 13th century in northern Sumatra; other Indonesian areas gradually adopted Islam which became the dominant religion in Java and Sumatra by the end of the 16th century. [1] The real impact of Hinduism was to come to Indonesia much later, as a deliberate missionary act by Brahmans, probably in the 5th century, by luck of coincidence some of the basic ideas of Hindusim accorded well with existing Indonesian mountain worship, and a strange hybrid of the two religions emerged. [1]

In 14th century, Islam was entered Indonesia through Gujarat, India. [1] Local traditions in many parts of Indonesia retain accounts in more or less legendary from 14th century Majapahit’s power. [1]

An entrepôt for Indian, Indonesian, Arab, Southeast Asian and, eventually, Chinese traders, Sriwijaya remained important until the 14th century. [1] The Hindu-Buddhist ideas reached the peak of their influence in the 14th century, the last and largest among the Hindu-Buddhist Javanese empires, Majapahit, influenced the Indonesian archipelago. [1]

Champa disappeared in the 14th century from History after many centuries of fight with the kingdom of Annam which was the advanced post of Chiense culture. [1] Islam in Southeast Asia In the 11th century, a turbulent period occurred in the history of Malay Archipelago, the Chola Navy crossed the ocean and attacked the Srivijaya kingdom of Sangrama Vijayatungavarman, Kadaram (Kedah), an important fortified city in the Malayan peninsula was sacked and the king was taken captive. [1] The primary sources for much of the information on the kingdom are the New History of the Tang, and the memoirs of the Chinese Buddhist monk Yijing who visited in 671 CE, and states that it was "absorbed" by Srivijaya by 692 CE, but had "broken away" by the end of the eleventh century according to Chao Jukua. [1]

Founded in the 3rd century, until the 13th century the Srivijaya kingdom dominated the Malay Peninsula and much of the island of Java from there. [1] The area of Surat Thani was already inhabited in prehistoric times by Semang, founded in the 3rd century, the Srivijaya kingdom dominated the Malay Peninsula until the 13th century. [1]

By the early 20th century, Indonesia began a movement for independence which grew particularly large between World Wars I and II and Japan occupied Indonesia during WWII. In the world of commerce, Srivijaya rapidly rose to be a far-flung empire controlling the two passages between India and China, the Sunda Strait from Palembang and the Malacca straits from Kedah. [1] By the early 20th century, Indonesia began a movement for independence which grew particularly large between World Wars I and II and Japan occupied Indonesia during WWII. The Chola expedition as well as changing trade routes weakened Palembang, allowing Jambi to take the leadership of Srivijaya from the 11th century on. [1] He also successfully invaded cities of Srivijaya of Malaysia and Indonesia, the Chola dynasty went into decline at the beginning of the 13th century with the rise of the Pandyan Dynasty, which ultimately caused their downfall. [1]

To give you a teaser as to why, a complete history of Indonesia would require talking about the Sudanese Indianised Tarumanagara (4th 7th Century) in Java, Kallinga Kindgom (6th 7th Century) and its successeors the Javanese Hindu-Budddhist Medang Kingdom (8th-10th Century). [1] Pre-colonial records are even sparser for eastern Indonesia than they are for Sulawesi, and only the sketchiest outline can be given of the region's history before the 17th century. [1]

In Indonesian history, Srivijaya is notable for being the first state to unite politically and culturally a significant area of the archipelago; it also established extensive ties with the states of Southeast Asia, India, China, and the Middle East. [1] Among the great maritime trading empires of history, the Kingdom of Srivijaya, based on the Indonesian island of Sumatra, ranks among the wealthiest and most splendid. [1] Srivijaya was the most influential Buddhist Kingdom ever formed in Indonesian history. [1]

These inscriptions were in the Old Malay language, the language used by Srivijaya and also the ancestor of Malay and Indonesian language, since the 7th century, the Old Malay language has been used in Nusantara (Malay-Indonesian archipelago), marked by these Srivijayan inscriptions and other inscriptions using old Malay language in the coastal areas of the archipelago, such as those discovered in Java. [1] Founded in the 3rd century, Srivijaya dominated the Malay Peninsula and much of the island of Java from there until the 13th century. [1]

The oldest Hindu art in Indonesia are Hindu statues found in Sumatra and Sulawesi dated to the A.D. 3rd century. [1] The Dutch ruled Indonesia for nearly three centuries, but by the turn of the 20th century, the Indonesians were more than ready for independence. [1] By the early 20th century, Indonesia began a movement for independence which grew particularly large between World Wars I and II and Japan occupied Indonesia during WWII. Negotiations with the Dutch on the incorporation of the territory into Indonesia failed, and armed clashes broke out between Indonesian and Dutch troops in 1961. [1]

For most of the Dutch East Indies history, and that of the Dutch East India Company (VOC) before it, Dutch control over these territories was tenuous; it was not until the early 20th century that Dutch dominance was extended to what was to become the boundaries of modern-day Indonesia. [1]

There is no further record of Srivijaya in the history of Indonesia ; the forgotten past was re-established by a foreign scholar. [1] There had been no continuous knowledge of the history of Srivijaya even in Indonesia; its forgotten past has been resurrected by foreign scholars. [1] Although commonly referred to as Indonesia's first discovered state ("A political entity with defined boundaries, a central government with clear authority over the territory enclosed within those boundaries and to which the citizenry owned allegiance" A Short History Of Indonesia), Srivijaya was more of a confederacy, in that it was centred around the capital with vassal states surrounding it. [1]

It established in seventh century. the name of Srivijaya also has history. [1] A major development in the history of Tibetan Buddhism occurred in the late 14th or early 15th century, when a great Buddhist reformer named Tsong-kha-pa established the Dge-lugs-pa school, known more popularly as the Yellow Hats. [1] While the early history of Singapore is obscured by myth and legend, some conclusions can be drawn from archaeological evidence, archaeology points to an urbanised settlement on the site by the 14th century. [1]

When Islam became ascendant on Java in the 14th century through trade with the Arabs, kingdoms were sporadically established around the country with the king being called a sultan. [1] The 14th century also witnessed the rise of a Hindu kingdom in East Java, the Majapahit. [1] By the 14th century, the Hindu Kingdom of Majapahit had risen in eastern Java. [1]

The Hindu Majapahit kingdom was founded in eastern Java in the late 13th century, and under Gajah Mada it experienced what is often referred to as a "Golden Age" in Indonesian history, when its influence extended to much of southern Malay Peninsula, Borneo, Sumatra, and Bali from about 1293 to around 1500. [1] Despite a lack of historical evidence, it is known that Majapahit was the most dominant of Indonesia's pre-Islamic states.The Hindu Majapahit kingdom was founded in eastern Java in the late 13th century, and under Gajah Mada it experienced what is often referred to as a "Golden Age" in Indonesian history,when its influence extended to much of southern Malay Peninsula, Borneo, Sumatra, and Bali from about 1293 to around 1500. [1]

The Seleucid Empire from the rise of Parthia in the late 3rd century BC to its final conquest by the Roman Empire in 60 BC. Hindu influences reached the Indonesian Archipelago as early as the first century, historical evidence is unclear about the diffusion process of cultural and spiritual ideas from India. [1] The site was abandoned mysteriously in the 15th century, but rebuilt in the 19th and 20th centuries into a monument to Indonesian history and culture, as well as the continuing influence of Buddhism in the world today. [1] Main article: History of Indonesia This is a timeline of Indonesian history. [1]

They originate from various areas in Java dating from the 7th to the 15 th century, the Hindu-Buddhist period in the history of the Indonesian archipelago. [1]

By the early 20th century, Indonesia began a movement for independence which grew particularly large between World Wars I and II and Japan occupied Indonesia during WWII. The great exodus of artists, dancers, musicians, and actors from Java to Bali in 14th and 15th century saw the Balinese culture flourish to great heights. [1] By the middle of the 14th century Majapahit controlled most of Java, Sumatra and the Malay peninsula, part of Borneo, the southern Celebes and the Moluccas. [1] Arab geographers referred to the island as Lamri in the tenth through thirteenth centuries, late in the 14th century the name Sumatra became popular in reference to the kingdom of Samudra Pasai, which was a rising power until it was replaced by Sultanate of Aceh. [1] Pannai, Panai or Pane is a Buddhist kingdom existed around 11th to 14th century located on east coast of Northern Sumatra. [1] During the 7th century until the 14th century, Buddhist kingdom of Sriwijaya in Sumatra growing rapidly. [1]

In the 14th century Sri Vijaya was suppressed by the Javanese kingdom of Majapahit, a rival for control of Archipelago trade. [1] By the middle of the 14th century, however, the Javanese empire of Majapahit claimed suzerainty over the whole of Sumatra and over the peninsula as far north as Langkasuka. [1] By the 14th century, most of the power of Sri Vijaya Kingdom waned and Sumatra came under the direct control of Javanese rulers. [1]

Although the historicity of the accounts as given in the Malay Annals is the subject of academic debates, it is nevertheless known from various documents that Singapore in the 14th century, then known as Temasek, was a trading port under the influence of both the Majapahit Empire and the Siamese kingdoms inside Indosphere of Greater India. [1] Similarities with the Java language only due to the influence of the Java language's vocabulary since the conquest of Bali by the Kingdom in Java, especially in the 14th century by Gajah Mada. [1] Jakarta was a small harbor town when the last Hindu Kingdom of Java, Kingdom of Pajajaran, was ruling in 14th century. [1] By the 14th century, Java was subdivided into a number of petty kingdoms, and any pretension to overall unity was lost. [1] Although it is believed that the name Singapura replaced Temasek some time in the 14th century, there is basically only one record which give some detail on the kingdoms of Singapura - the Malay Annals written during the heyday of Melaka and re-compiled in 1612 by the Johor court. [1] After its eventual fall in 14th century AD, some kingdoms were established in South Sumatra. [1] In the 14th century, a senior minister of Majapahit Empire Adityawarman founded the Malayapura Kingdom centered near Tanjungemas and presided over the central Sumatera region, most likely to control the local gold trade. [1] The Thai kingdom of Ayudhya had claimed sovereignty on the Peninsula since the 14th century, and often exacted tribute from the more northerly states. [1] By the 14th century, states had begun to form in the southwestern peninsula (generally called South Sulawesi), but because there appears to have been little Indic cultural influence in this process, there are no significant inscriptions from this era. [1] The only stone inscription was 14th century Astana Gede inscription discovered in Kawali, from all these sources, it was concluded that Galuh was a Hindu kingdom, the predecessor of later Sunda Pajajaran kingdom. [1]

The reason was that after the 20th century AD several historians and archaeologists including Indonesian archaeologists themselves have admitted that the stone scripture and evidence subsequently found, demonstrating that the Srivijaya Kingdom had her capital at Chaiya District, Surat Thani. [1] In sum, this Chinese source from early 13th century suggested that the Indonesian archipelago was ruled by two great kingdoms, western part was under Srivijayas rule, while eastern part was under Kediri domination. [1] The Indonesian archipelago has been an important region for trade since at least the 7th century, when Srivijaya and then later Majapahit traded with China and India. [1]

Modern Indonesian nationalists have also invoked the name of Srivijaya, along with Majapahit, as a source of pride in Indonesia's past greatness. [1]

The political history of Indonesian archipelago during the 7th to 11th centuries was dominated by Srivijaya based in Sumatra, also Sailendra that dominated central Java and constructed Borobudur, the largest Buddhist monument in the world. [1] Indonesia's strategic sea-lane position fostered inter-island and international trade; trade has since fundamentally shaped Indonesian history. [1]


Bajang Ratu temple Located in east Java and established in 14th century. [1] Prior to the founding of 14th century Majapahit Empire, Javanese kingdoms were primarily agriculture based. [1] The Majapahit kingdom achieved great prosperity especially in the 14th century. [1] Indian influence between the 8th and 14th century produced a number of small Shaivite-Buddhist kingdoms. [1] Later the plains of Central Thailand was dominated by Sukhothai in the 13th century and later Ayutthaya Kingdom in the 14th century. [1] This description, would in the future, prove very offhand and unassuming, for even as Singapore entered the 14th century, it had gained might as part of the romantic, albeit tragic, Srivijayan Empire. [1] The settlement developed in the 13th or 14th century and rose from a small Srivijayan trading outpost into a centre of trade with ties to the Yuan Dynasty. [1] C. to 14th century A. D. The Vijayanagara Empire, founded in 14th century A. D. was the last Indian dynasty that ruled over the region. [1] By the 14th century, under Datu Padojinog, this state had grown so powerful militarily and economically, so much so, that the Chuan-chou gazeeter specifically reported that the Pisheya/Bisaya consistently made devastating raids against the Empires commerce. [1] The most extensive early account comes from the 14th century Javanese Nagarakertagama (Desawarnyana), which records over twenty states in Borneo as tributary to Majapahit. [1] The Javanese Majapahit Empire's rule over Bali became complete in the 14th century when Gajah Mada, Prime Minister of the Javanese king, defeated the Balinese king at Bedulu. [1] The Majapahit dynasty began to decline in the late 14th century, however, and it most likely fell early in the 16th century, when the last vestige of Indo-Javanese rule was destroyed by the followers of Islam. [1] Vajrayana Buddhism survived in both islands as well as the Malay Peninsula until eclipsed by Islam in the late 13th century and early 14th century. [1] By the 14th century, Arab traders and their followers who ventured into Maritime Southeast Asia, Visayans practiced a mixture of Islamic, Hindu and Buddhist beliefs although there were also groups that were varied, some groups exclusively practiced Islam or Hinduism or Buddhism. [1] The kingdom may have dragged on until sometime in the 14th century, but by then its power was a mere husk. [1] The increasing power of the Siamese kingdoms Sukothai in the 13th and, nearer and even more powerful, Ayyuthiya in the 14th century resultes in many foreign invasion and a decline of Angkor. [1] Hinduism & Buddhism came to South East Asia at least 1,000 years before the Malacca Dynasty in the 14th Century. [1] By the 14th century the firearm and cannon could also be found in Europe, India, and the Islamic Middle East, during the early age of gunpowder warfare. [1] The Hoysala Empire from the invasions of the Sultanate of Delhi circa 1318 until its dissolution circa 1346, and then the Vijayanagara Empire as its successor until its consolidation of power in southern India in the late 14th century. [1] The construction was started around 1120 CE and completed in 1150 CE. During the early 14th century, Halebidu was sacked and looted by Muslim invaders from northern India and the temple fell into a state of ruin and neglect. [1] The only Chinese first-hand account of 14th century Temasek, Dao Yi Zhi Lue written by Wang Dayuan, however the word used by Wang indicates that the ruler of Temasek was not independent, rather he was a vassal of another more powerful state. [1] Some time in the later half of the 14th century, Majapahit sent its navy towards Palembang and Malayu, thus conquering the city. [1] Some time in the 14th century, the name Temasek was replaced by Singapura, legend has it that the name was given by Sang Nila Utama when he visited the island in 1344 and saw an unknown creature, which he was informed was a lion. [1] The island is said to have received its name from a visiting Sumatran prince in the 14th century, who saw a fearsome creature - later identified to him as a lion - on his arrival. [1] During the 14th century, this small but strategically-located island earned a new name. [1]

Although the historicity of the accounts as given in the Malay Annals is the subject of academic debates, it is nevertheless known from various documents that Singapore in the 14th century, then known as Temasek, was a trading port under the influence of both the Majapahit Empire and the Siamese. [1] If we began with Parameswara, it means that from the 14th century Singapore has been claimed as Malay property, not during Raffles’ time in the 18th century. [1] Buddhism followed Hinduism by a few hundred years and reached its peak at the time of the Sriwijaya dynasty and flourished from the 7th century to the 14th century. [1] Historical sources also indicate that around the end of the 14th century, its ruler Parameswara was attacked by either the Majapahit or the Siamese, forcing him to move on to Melaka where he founded the Sultanate of Malacca, Archaeological evidence suggests that the main settlement on Fort Canning was abandoned around this time, although a small trading settlement continued in Singapore for some time afterwards. [1] At the end of the 14th century and the beginning of the 15th century, the influence of Majapahit in the archipelago began to decrease. [1] After its peak in the 14th century, Majapahit influence declined precipitously. [1]

By the end of the 13th century and beginning of 14th century, major parts of India came under Muslim Turkick Sultanates. [1] In mid 14th century, the Majapahit empire mentioned in its manuscript Nagarakretagama, written by Prapanca in 1365that the area of Selurong (Majapahit term for Luzon or Maynila) and Solot (Sulu) were parts of the empire.
