Pre-Islamic period
Based on analysis of prehistoric objects found (such as complex sarcophagi,
decorated stoneware, machetes, and axes), West Nusa Tenggara had previously been
inhabited by people who come from Southeast Asia.

The natives in this region are called the Sasak people, most of whom live on the
island of Lombok. Meanwhile, on the island of Sumbawa are also natives consisting
of two groups, namely ethnic Sumbawa (Samawa) and Bima. However, with the wave of
migrants from Bali, Makassar, Java, Kalimantan, Nusa Tenggara, Maluku and East Nusa
Tenggara, the indigenous people entered the farm and then stay in the interior.

The existence of this region can not be separated from the heyday of Majapahit
Empire in the 14th century who conquered all the kingdoms located on the islands of
both Lombok and Sumbawa. In the book Negarakertagama by Empu Prapanca in 1365, it
was written that West Lombok was named Lombok Mirah and East Lombok was named Sasak
Adi, Taliwang, Dompo (Dompu), Sape, Sanghyang Fire, Bhima (Bima), Seram (Seran) and
Hutan Kedali (Utan).[4]

Islamic period
In the early reign of the kings in West Nusa Tenggara, the influence of Hinduism
was very strong. It can not be separated from the influence of the Majapahit empire
expansion into the region. But with the collapse of the Majapahit kingdom, the
influence of Hinduism began to decrease with the onset of the influence of Islam in
the coastal communities.

The advent of the Demak Sultanate in Central Java had a huge impact on the spread
of the teachings of Islam in West Nusa Tenggara. The influence of Islam in West
Nusa Tenggara was generally brought by the Malays. The influence of Islam in Bima
can not be separated from the support of King I Maliingkaang Daeng-Mannyonriq of
Makassar, who was then known as Karaeng Matoaya who played an important role in the
spread of Islam in the region.

The influence of Islam in the Bima Sultanate emerged in the reign of King Manuru
Salehi around 1605 and began to grow rapidly during the reign of King Abdul Kahir .
King Abdul Kahir is also known as the Sultan of Bima I, because he was the king who
first embraced Islam in Bima, so it is considered a new era, separate from the
previous Bima king who embraced Hinduism. Islam became the official religion of the
kings in West Nusa Tenggara.[5]

Colonial period
The Europeans who first came to the land of Nusa Tenggara were the Portuguese who
landed on the island of Solor and Timor in 1605. At the same time the Dutch also
came to the island of Hitu and Ambon, in the Malukus. The first Dutch ship that
entered the area was the Ter Ver which docked in Kupang in 1611. The arrival of the
Dutch led to a long dispute between the Portuguese and the Dutch in Nusa Tenggara.
The Dutch provided assistance to the local kings who resisted the Portuguese. The
Netherlands then expanded its influence in Nusa Tenggara, to make a variety of
agreements with small kings around the island of Sumbawa.

The penetration of the Dutch colonial administration that was so strong in

Indonesia was increasingly bringing real impact to the survival of Indonesian
society in general. One result was very broad: in the eastern part of Indonesia,
the Sultanate of Gowa began to decline in its supremacy in the 17th century. Gowa
nobility who did not submit to the colonial government fled from Makassar and built
pockets of resistance in West Nusa Tenggara. To face such resistance, the colonial
government began to concentrate power in Nusa Tenggara Barat. This was reinforced
by the emergence of Lombok for international trade traffic, so the desire of the
Dutch to rule West Nusa Tenggara directly become apparent.

Faced with such a situation, the Dutch colonial government sent Stephen van Hegen
for a close look at the Bima situation in 1660. The arrival of the Dutch influenced
the political and economic situation in this area. In 1669, the Government of the
Kingdom of Bima led by Sultan Ambela Abdul Khair Sirajuddin, made peace and
friendship ties with the colonial government with the contents of the agreement as

The Sultanate of Bima and Dompu will not attack Makassar

To keep the peace, only members of the Dutch East India Company may visit the Bima
Bima and Makassar will not make any contact at all.
Foreign traders from Europe, India, Java, Malaya, Arab lands, Aceh, and Champa must
not engage in trade with Bima, except by special permit from the Dutch East India
The agreement with the Sultan of Bima and Dompu recognized the existence of the
Dutch colonial power. Since then, the Netherlands sought to consolidate its control
by blocking the Bima port to prevent the arrival of aid from Makassar or other
foreign countries. The effort was done so that the existing ports in Bima and
Lombok Island were considered to be strategic, and not fall into British hands.

The Dutch supremacy in the region was very strong, so the king and the people in
the region could not move freely. This condition became worse with the eruption of
Mount Tambora on April 5, 1815, which shook the entire region, and the consequences
could be felt throughout the Moluccas, Java, Sulawesi, Sumatra and Kalimantan.
Mount Tambora's eruption resulted in the disappearance of the two kingdoms of
Tambora and Papekat. More than 10,000 people were killed.

The existence of the status of the province West Nusa Tenggara did not come by
itself. The struggle demanded that the formation of West Nusa Tenggara province
take place over quite a long time. West Nusa Tenggara province previously had been
part of the State of East Indonesia in the conception of the Republic of Indonesia
States, and be part of the small Sunda province after recognition of Indonesian
Along with the dynamics and after some time, the process of changing the
constitutional system after the proclamation of the Independence of the Republic of
Indonesia then formed the province of West Nusa Tenggara. With the enactment of Law
No. 64 of 1958 Date August 14, 1958 on the Establishment of Regions Autonomous of
Bali, West Nusa Tenggara and East Nusa Tenggara, the province was officially
established and the first Governor of the province was AR. Moh. Ruslan

West Nusa Tenggara has two kinds of landscape. The first is the island of Lombok
with the coastline fairly straight, with the central to eastern part in the form of
mountains, and coastal lowlands in the east. The second is Sumbawa Island with a
jagged coastline because of the many headlands and bays, and the central part is
covered with hills and limestone mountains.

Selong (capital of East Lombok Regency) is a city that has the highest altitude,
which is 148 m above sea level, while the lowest Raba at 13 m above sea level. Of
the seven mountains on the island of Lombok, Mount Rinjani is the highest mountain
with an altitude of 3,775 m, while Mount Tambora on Sumbawa is the highest mountain
with an altitude of 2,851 m.

Like the rest of Indonesia, NTB has a tropical climate. Based on statistics from
the meteorological institute, the maximum temperature in 2001 ranged from 30.9 to
32.1 �C and minimum temperature ranged between 20.6 and 24.5 �C. The highest
temperatures occur in September and the lowest are in November. Being tropical, NTB
has a high average relative humidity, which is between 48 and 95%.

West Nusa Tenggara has relatively little rainfall compared to the western region of
Indonesia. Maximum rainfall in the province occurs in January and minimum rainfall
occurs in August.

The area of West Nusa Tenggara (NTB) has very beautiful natural scenery, be it the
mountains or the beach. This has caused many tourists from other parts of Indonesia
and other countries to flock to the province due to its stunning scenery.

In addition to the panorama of beautiful tourist attractions, food crops and

horticulture developed and cultivated by the community that are profitable for
farmers, among others, are: soybeans, peanuts, corn, green beans, peppers, onions,
mangoes, bananas and pineapples. In addition to the nine kinds of commodities in
the regions, other horticultural commodities that can be developed are potatoes,
carrots, apples, and grapes.

As for fisheries, NTB has 3 areas of fisheries development:

The island of Lombok, with a priority on the development of marine aquaculture and
freshwater fisheries, brackish water aquaculture (ponds), catching public waters;
The western part of Sumbawa Island, priority on the development of brackish water
aquaculture (ponds), mariculture, arrest, public waters and freshwater aquaculture;
Eastern part of Sumbawa Island with priority on the development of catching,
mariculture, public waters, and freshwater aquaculture.
West Nusa Tenggara is one of the major manufacturers and suppliers of livestock and
seeds to the needs of various regions in Indonesia. The carrying capacity of
livestock-based agribusiness development, among others, the potential availability
of cattle in quality and quantity, land resources, and fodder, support all
production, pet patterns as a group, are non communicable diseases as well as the
bank still has domestic and export markets.[clarification needed] The NTB cow is a
kind of Bali cattle, which is a leading NTB commodity and has domestic and export
markets. In addition to cows and buffaloes, other supporting commodities are pigs,
goats and horses, chickens, and ducks.
