HistoryEdit

During the colonial era, Bekasi was dominated by particuliere landerijen ('private domains'; Indonesian: tanah partikelir) which came under the rule of Landheeren (landlords).[3] The landlords could impose taxation (cuke), tribute (upeti) and force labor (rodi) on the inhabitants of their private estates.[4]

Among the most powerful gentry families in Bekasi was the Khouw family of Tamboen (Indonesian: keluarga Khouw van Tamboen).[5] They ruled their extensive landholdings from their country house, landhuis Tamboen (now Gedung Juang Tambun).
