History

MBJB logo

Johor Bahru was founded in 1855 by Temenggung Daeng Ibrahim, the father of Sultan Abu Bakar, one of the best-remembered of all Malay Sultans, and Chinese businessman Wong Ah Fook. The town was originally named Tanjung Puteri, and it had its beginnings as a small Malay fishing village. Sultan Abu Bakar changed the name to Johor Bahru when he proclaimed it the capital of his kingdom in 1866, after he moved the seat of government from the old capital at Teluk Belanga in Singapore.

Sultan Abu Bakar was descended from Temenggong Abdul Rahman, the local chief who signed the initial treaty with the British when they sought permission to lease Singapore island in 1819. Much of the prosperity Johor enjoys today can be traced directly to Sultan Abu Bakar's success in persuading British and Chinese entrepreneurs to invest in agricultural estates in the area. Sultan Abu Bakar took a great interest in planning and laying out his royal city of Johor Bahru; consequently, many buildings and places in the city today bear his name and marks. For example, the Royal Abu Bakar Museum, Sultan Abu Bakar Mosque and Maktab Sultan Abu Bakar, which is also the oldest school in Johor are named after him. The customs checkpoint at the 2nd link is also named after him into Sultan Abu Bakar Complex.

Demographics

The District of Johor Bahru's population is 1 056 000 (2000 census) with current population in 2006 to be in the region of 1.5 million. It consists of 45% Malay, 41.5% Chinese, 9.1% Indian and 4.4% of other minorities. [2]


Among the Chinese, the Teochew, Hakka, Hokkien, Cantonese and Hainanese are the five major dialect groups in Johor Bahru. A small, significant minority of Hokchew/Foochow does exist. Due to the influence of the Singaporean mass media and the government policy of using Mandarin in all schools, the majority of the younger generation Chinese speak Mandarin and English at home.


The Teochews, who are the most populous among all other Chinese dialect groups in Johor Bahru, had a long standing history as they had established themselves in gambier plantations under the direction of Tan Hiok Nee, who developed the Kangchu system in consultation with the Sultan. He received the sultan's blessings for the plantation owners to develop their business in the systematic method. Many more Teochews migrated to Johor Bahru later, and settled there.


The Hakkas later migrated to Johor Bahru in large numbers, and also formed a large community among the Chinese in Johor Bahru. The Cantonese, under the leadership of Wong Ah Fook, began settling in Johor Bahru in the wake of the Kangchu system pioneered by Tan Hiok Nee from the 19th century onwards.
