Bekasi Regency is a regency (kabupaten) of West Java Province, Indonesia. The capital city is Cikarang. It is bordered by DKI Jakarta and Bekasi Municipality to the west, by Bogor Regency to the south, and by Karawang Regency to the east.

It has an area of 1,224.88 km2 and contained 2,630,401 people[1] at the 2010 Census; the latest official estimate (as at January 2014) is 2,828,767, with a density of 2,309 people/km2.


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).
