History

During the colonial era, Bekasi was dominated by private estates (Dutch: particuliere landen; Indonesian: tanah partikelir) which came under the rule of landlords (Dutch: landheeren; Indonesian: juragan or tuan tanah).[2] The landlords could impose taxation (cuke), tribute (upeti) and force labor (rodi) on the inhabitants of their private estates.[3]

Among the most powerful gentry families in Bekasi was the Khouw family of Tamboen (Indonesian: keluarga Khouw van Tamboen).[4] They ruled their extensive landholdings from their country house, landhuis Tamboen (now Gedung Juang Tambun).
