Foreign Tourists Visits Down 21 Percent

Pekanbaru - Number of foreign tourists (Wisman) who visited the Riau Province in October 2009 reached 23,441 people. That number is down 21 percent when compared to the number of foreign tourists in the same month in 2008 who reached the figure of 37,000 tourists.

This figure is a heavy blow to the condition of Riau tourists. But on the other hand, the number of local tourists if it actually increased over the previous year. Data in October 2008 reached 2.1 million increase in 2009 was the year to 2.3 million people.

''This year is the number of foreign tourists dropped compared to last year. The reason is the lack of promotion of tourism treasures in Riau,''said Chief of Riau Tourism Board (RTB), Sulaiman told Fadlah Post Pekanbaru, Wednesday (16/12) as a speaker at the Campus School of Tourism (Stipar) Riau.

Fadlah explained, that the true potential of local tourists and this is good enough that in fact escaped the attention of the government. The government is more likely to pursue the amount or quantity to increase foreign tourists than focusing on the management of local tourists. While pursuing foreign tourists, the government is quite limited in terms of promotion abroad.

Our weakness''sometimes we want to pursue the quantity of foreign tourists to the exclusion of local tourists. We'll see local tourists are even more prospective than foreign tourists,''said Fadlah.

The solution, said Fadlah, the government must do a lot of promotion of tourist spots that are for sale. Along with that, the government also must continue to make improvements both in infrastructure and other supporting factors such as the entry, airports, ports and others.

2010''next year we will be heavily promoting the 2009 year 72 iven this 311 iven. This promotion can hopefully boost the tourism world Riau,''said Fadlah.

While Chairman Stipar Riau, Drs MM Riyono Trisoko Cede said that a half-day seminar aims to foster kepekanaan relevant stakeholders in the development of regional tourism. ''We hope that starting from this seminar dapatmenjadi corrections and followed-up,''said Riyono

I can not imagine success. Through this short any posts, I will
try to give ideas how to implement in the field with
take the example cases in Palembang, because:
a. Palembang is a city in Indonesia, which continues to grow and
birth recorded in an inscription is dated 16 June 682
Christian era.
b. Sriwijaya in the era, the city has a relationship of friendship with
Nālanda and Nagipattana, India (Prasasti Nālanda, 9th century BC, Prasasti
Kings I, 1044/1046 years BC), Sitammarat Nakhon, Thailand (Prasasti
Wiang Sa, 775 years BC), Kedah, Malaysia (Chinese news, I tsing century
to-7 BC), and Canton, China (Qing Tien Prasasti, the year 1079 BC).
c. At the time of Majapahit (15th century BC), Palembang related
with Malacca, Malaysia. Even the city Malaka associated
Parameswara with that derived from Bukit Siguntang, Palembang.
d. On-The Sultanate of Palembang Darussalam (17th century BC-19) there is
relationship of friendship with the Sultanate of Sulu in the Southern Philippines (Mindanau).
A source informs that the history of one of the
Sultan of Sulu are still relatives near Sultan Palembang Darussalam.
1. The Old City Palembang
Indonesian or formerly known as "Nusantara" has a history of human dwelling long enough. Just call the island of Java by the internationally known as one of human origin with the ancient site Sangiran, Pacitan, and Wajak. Start Babakan history while Indonesia has already started on the 5-th century BC, that is in the Kutai (East Kalimantan) and Tarumanagara (West Java). Unfortunately, from the beginning of human civilization is not found the remnants huniannya, especially housing, which continues to develop into a city.
City growth is the result of a form of settlement. Not to develop a settlement into a city can depend on the keletakan settlements and natural resources that can support people in a dwelling. Indonesian have many of the old city which comes from simple residential level. However, not all can be developed rapidly into a major city. A course, for example, cities in the old Barus, Pidie, Jambi, Jakarta, Banten, Jakarta, Lasem, Tuban, Gresik, Surabaya, Makassar, Ternate, Tidore, and many more.
Among the older cities in the archipelago, Palembang is a city that has a unique old, as I have already utarakan in bagiam face. After dimukimi and built, Palembang growing from time to time until now. Various government silih change and build support in the city.
Palembang as a site of the city (urban site), of course, have the product architecture as a high civilization. View from the data writing (inscription and ancient script-script) and the data arkeologis up to us, the history of Palembang as a metropolitan city can be described chronologically as follows:
1. Phase I is the First Phase (682-1365) in which a city marked by the development wanua (= settlement) Sriwijaya on 16 June 682 BC by Dapunta Hiyaŋ proceed with the development Śrīksetra Park on 23 March 684 BC, and eventually expanding to the area of power various directions (Jambi, Bangka, and Lampung).
2. Phase II is the occupation phase (1365-1407) by Majapahit, or it can be said also Phase Status Quo's going on around the 14-th century BC. At this time of Palembang in the "not maintained" and there is no de jure sovereignty. News said that China at that time occupied by Palembang people of Nan-hai Liang crown with Tau-ming with her son as the supreme ruler.
3. Phase III is the Sultanate of Palembang First Phase (1407-1642). Began in 1407 when Mugni was a king in the title of Sultan of Palembang Palembang. In the year 1445 and then replaced by Mugni Aria Damar - a nobleman who embrace Islam Majapahit - become the ruler of Palembang after a change in name to Aria Dilah. At this time Palembang are still under the influence of Java (Demak and Mataram) until the year 1642. 2
4. Phase IV is a phase-Palembang Darussalam Sultanate (1643-1821) started from the government of Sri Susuhunan Abdurrahman (1643-1651), and ended the government of Sultan Mahmud Badaruddin II (1811-1821). At this phase, Palem-bang at the time of Sultan Mahmud Badaruddin I (1724-1758) the development of large-scale physical. Monumental building made at the palace was the epoch Kuto Tengkuruk, Mesjid Agung Palembang, The crater Tengkurep, and Benteng Kuto Besak.
5. Phase V is the phase occupation by the Dutch beginning with the fall of Benteng Koto Besak in the year 1821. This phase lasted until independence in 1945. At this time, the palace Kuto Tengkuruk trim with the land, and on the house was built runtuhannya Commissioner Netherlands. The building is now the Museum of Sultan Mahmud Badaruddin II.
Reconstruction Period Sriwijaya in Palembang, about a century to-7-9-Christian
Sriwijaya period (680 years-an) from 1 Ilir in the east until Karanganyar village in the west, from the northern edge Musi Talang Kelapa Village to the north. Meanwhile, across Ulu area (south of Musi) not found arkeologis data from the Sriwijaya period. This means that the city of Palembang is still called kala Sriwijaya still occupy the area north of the river Musi.
Knowledgeable in the Palembang sultanate not much different from the Sriwijaya period. Only added a little area with the Ulu. However, the central government remain in the north Musi. Central government (sultan palace residence) moved. Starting from the 1 Ilir (palace Palembang LAMO, or Kuto wicket), 16 Ilir (palace Beringin beard), or Kuto Old Stone Kuto, and the last palace Kuto Besak. Kuto Besak built about 100 meters to the west palace Kuto Lama. Later royal palace remaining Palembang is a city palace Besak. At this time there is regulation of the city, such as a residence of foreigners in the area located opposite Ulu, around Plaju.
2. Palembang and Malacca
Arts-seems, from time to time Siguntang Hill * indeed have long recognized, as listed in the Sejarah Melayu written on 13 May 1612 BC.
"The country is Palembang, Palembang is now here. So in the upstream river Tatang that there is a river, a Malay name; in the river is a hill called Bukit Si Guntang; in the upper Mount Miru, in daratnya one called the Padang Penjaringan. So there are two women farming, Wan-seo Empo rang Wan Malini name and a name, and that both reside in Bukit Si Guntang that, humanya too broad, so too syahadan rice, can not be able to; was that the rice is almost cooked. "
That sepenggal sentences listed in the Sejarah Melayu. So it menceriterakan decrease being half of the god (the Siperba) to Bukit Siguntang and later down the kings Malay in Sumatra, West Kalimantan, and the Malay Peninsula Land. According to the Sejarah Melayu, Bukit Siguntang is Mount Mahameru as there are stories in the literature of Hindu and Buddhist religions.
"Past masyhurlah in the country that all children king king offspring Iskandar Dhu'lkarnain down to Bukit Guntang Si Maha Miru, then all the kings of all nege-ripun came to the king that sekaliannya with persembahannya".
* It is a small hill that high +26 meter dpl Hill is located approximately 5 km to the west from the city of Palembang. From this there is a small hill tinggalan cultural past form of a Buddha statue is approximately 4 meters high, the stone inscription, the building brick foundation, fraction, fraction tiles and pottery, and some other types of religious artefacts.
Next Malay History decipher the Siperba travel to another place to cross over Sumatra Kalimantan.
"Once out of the Kuala Palembang, and sailed towards the south in six days six nights, falling to Tanjung Pura. But the King was out Tanjung Pura mengelu welcome all of the pomp and glory ... After Majapahit seem to, that the king came down from the hill Siguntang in Tanjung Pura, the Majapahit Batara departure would also meet with the Siperba ".
In the Sejarah Melayu, the mind can have three kings, that is a king who fell from Siguntang Hill, King of Tanjung Pura, and the King of Majapahit. Majapahit King said the noble king "But the time that the queen is the king of Majapahit, again very noble. Likewise terhormatnya king of Majapahit and the Siperba, the king of the hill down from Siguntang, marry a daughter to the king of Majapahit. Meanwhile one of the children Siperba, the Maniaka, is integrated with the child's Tanjung Pura king and became king in Tanjung Pura. Descended from the Siperba is that Parameswara and the way forward to the Malay Peninsula Land.
Bukit Siguntang by some people in Sumatra and the Malay Peninsula, is considered holy because it is a "punden" is the Malay. According to the Book of History of Literature, the King, who ruled in the Malacca said as descended from the Siperba, being half-god who came down the hill Siguntang. Therefore, the Malay of Malacca who visit Palembang, less complete if it does not pay a visit to Bukit Siguntang.
Strong "belief" of the story is to encourage Malay History Malacca Governor for doing napak tilas travel Parameswara, from the build up to the Siperba Sultanate of Malacca on the west coast of Peninsular Malaysia. Travel napak tilas using the ship to make this kind of pilgrimage tour with the aim Siguntang Hill.
If the associated between Palembang and Malacca, and emotionally bound (pendu-kerchief) Palembang and Malacca, this situation will benefit us. People Malacca, at least the Malay nobility to its future to do perja-lanan pilgrimage to Palembang. Sepengetahuan me at a certain time in each year of their entourage came to Palembang.
3. Palembang Darussalam -
Palembang ruler, known as The Modern Malay is Sultan Mahmud Badaruddin I or known by the name of Sultan Mahmud Badaruddin Jayo Wikramo who ruled in the years 1724-1758. During the reign of Sultan is a lot to the development of the city, including The Lemabang or also known by the name of craters Tengkurep (1728), Kuto Stone (Kuto LAMO, 29 September 1737), Great Mosque (26 May 1748), and canal-canal (canal ) around the city of Palembang. Perhaps say Sultan also initiated the development Benteng Kuto Besak. In addition, he also developed a tin mine in the trade and managing the system to be more profitable over.
Map Regions core palace made by Mayor William Thorn year 1811.
Royal palace area of the core-Palembang Darussalam at the time of Sultan Mahmud Badaruddin I extent of 50 hectares with boundary on the north side of River Kapuran, in the east is bordered by River Tengkuruk (now Jl. Soedirman General), in the south is bordered by River Musi, and in the west is bordered by River Sekanak. Initially, in the area of land that the width is about 50 hectares, there are only buildings (Benteng) Kuto Stone or Kuto Tengkuruk Great Mosque and building a tower with a domed roof.
Palembang war years between 1819 and 1821 Sultan Mahmud Badaruddin II and the Netherlands, not only eliminate the institution but also destroyed the sultanate palace building Kuto Tengkuruk. At the top of the rubble, building rubble used Kuto Tengkuruk built a magnificent house for the residence of Resident Palembang, van Sevenhoven (1825). This building now serves as the Museum of Sultan Mahmud Badaruddin II.
In the core areas palace, the government Gemeente Palembang (early 20th century) made some of the fruit until it is still standing strong. Buildings, among other Water Tower (now Kantor Walikota Palembang), and Musi Hotel. At this time also that there are few rivers in the area have changed the core functions. Tengkuruk River on the east Kuto Tengkuruk ditimbun to the road that is now Jl. Jendral Soedirman. River on the north Kuto Besak / Water Tower ditimbun become Jl. Merdeka.

4. Advice
City Palembang has been recognized by the international world, at least dike-nal by scientists engaged in the field of history and archeology. Palembang old city known as the closely related with the existence of the Sriwijaya Kingdom. Therefore, in the regional Southeast Asia, Sriwijaya want to talk about would not also have to talk about Palembang, Kedah, Nakhon Sitammarat, China, and India.
Based on consideration of historical background and many multiformity ting galan-cultural past in Palembang, the management of cultural resources, and local attractions (especially the history of tourism and pilgrimage tours), through any posts short I propose this:
a. Developing cultural tourism region of Palembang in accordance with the rule-principle pemintakatan (zoning) of heritage as stipulated by the authorities. It is recommended that the area can be a historical old town core area is on the palace that the width of 50 ha.
b. Monitoring physical development of the city with good cultural attention tinggalan on the ground and in the surface soil, and provide asistensi on development activities related to the heritage items. Moreover, the current Government City Palembang are zealous to physical development. An old building, former residence of the Resident of Palembang has been demolished to build the Museum Textiles (Kompas, 11 and 14 October 2005, hlm. 12). This building built in 1883, before the government Gemeente Palembang.
c. Do pembenahan for hygiene and security environment in the vicinity of cultural tourism with the environment related institutions in the Provincial Government and City Government. Palembang factor for security is very important to be addressed, as many crime-prone places.
d. Make planning a cooked with a clear concept about as Heritage City Palembang.
e. In an effort to promote tourism cooperation between the history of ASEAN countries, emphasized the need to campaign on the historic relationship between Jakarta and other places which have historical links, eg, its between Palembang and Malacca. In general, the other cities in Indonesia that will be Heritage City should have a relationship with an kesejarah-Heritage City in the other regions, Southeast Asia (China, Japan and South Korea).
f. In an effort to promote integration and cultural diversity of ASEAN, some of the material culture (Material Culture) Palembang get foreign influence, for example, the influence of Chinese art that is reflected in the making of handicrafts and weaving lakuer songkets, should be promoted to the world.

Riau Arwana Fish Exporters

arwanaResults dri ten thousand more per year
Tacit riu is in fact a local fish exporter Arwana. In fact, every year from eleven in the penangkaran riau, able to produce more than ten thousand fish Arwana.

Arwana fish, especially species Sclerofages formosus international, since mid-1975, are included in the list Appendiks ICITES (Convetion on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Flora and Fauna).

This means Arwana fish species with the same type that is in the sumatera and Kalimantan is endangered. Same with the tiger terancamnya sumatera.

That is according to the head BBKSDA Riau Rachman Sidik and head of the section and give the service Dwi Yani, thursday (19 / 3)., Perdagangannya are very strict. Fish may not be of natural origin. However, the results should not penagkaran and also the descendants of the first or generasin. Must be a generation or two, known by the term F2.

Dwi said there are two main reasons why fish are protected Arwana. First, because siatnya the endemic only means there is a special-didaerah particular regions, especially riau (including islands and jambi bangka), Kalimantan and Papua. Second, because of the limited amount dialam.

To protect the existence of fish in natural Arwana the fish is also listed in the government regulation number seven in 1999 on conservation and wildlife. That which then become the legal basis that those who catch, injure kill, save, have, maintain, menagkap, and memperniagakan Arwana fish can be charged with the law number five in 1990 article 21 paragraph 2. pidananya accordance with the provisions of Article 40 paragraph 4 can dipidana the old jail for one year and fine of 5 million more.

"Law of this tangle of trade was not heavy enough. Why not heavy, please Ask the House to make rules. But it should be remembered, that diperdagangan overseas, Riau always been one of the local source Arwana illegal trade. This problem may be small, but its impact nma both international, "said Rachman.

Riau have successfully penagkaran

Although a few days ago, in pekanbaru, riau penagkapan has occurred on one of the fish traders Arwana illegal. However, according to Dwi in Riau sendiritelah many companies are also engaged in fish trading business Arwana legally. At least eleven companies that have permission penangkaran. Although only seven who have permission memperdagangkannya and six of them have permission to export.

"At least more than ten thousand fish each year Arwana generated from penangkaran fish in Arwana riau. That can be a certificate of the amount that we spend. Fish in addition to meeting the needs in the country, also is exported to japan, Taiwan, singapore, Hong Kong, and china, "said Dwi.

With penangkaran according to Dwi, the community can actually have a fish Arwana legally. Therefore, he urges the community penghobi fish Arwana to have fish Arwana legal course. Is marked with the certificate for the fish Arwana by the BBKSDA and ditubuh fish there is a microchip serial number fish. Series on the microchip is to be the same as the existing disertifikat.

Suggestions for Arwana legal fish have also raised by Anuar Salma, owner of PT Salmah Aquaprima Lestari (SAL) and PT Silva Dena Aquamina. According to the company men who have permission mengantongi since 1987 from the forestry department, with fish have Arwana legal, then penghobi just feel more calm. He also as employers feel comfortable. Although diakuinya many requirements that must be dipenuhinya.

Salma at least according to a number of phases that have passed the company to free trade in fish Arwana and abroad. First have the permission penangkaran. Second, the successful second-generation (F2) and so on. Third, have the permission pengedar in the country. Fourth, register Arwana fish that will be traded to foreign countries and the CITES secretary meliki permission pengedar abroad.

"If the fish to carry Arwana in the country must be reported to BBKSDA use to transport mendaparkan Letters Tumbuhan and Wildlife Affairs (SATS-DN) and the Office of the Fish Quarantine Fish quarantine, and must be reviewed before kamipun first about truth and certainty of the microchip and certificate, "said Salma dilaluinya about procedures.

Begitupula when trading abroad. They should do the same stage and had to obtain Letters Tumbuhan transport and Wildlife Foreign Affairs (SATS-LN).

Hopefully riau wings can continue to develop the country as a fish exporter Arwana.

Kingdom Koto Alang

The Hamlet at Botuang
Kingdom of Alang = Koto village BOTUANG?>>
During three hours the team (SKC) journey through the land to the City Taluk Kuantan the capital of Regency Kuantan Singingi (Regency Kuansing) from the center of Pekanbaru (Riau Pripinsi), on sunday and the third third day in October, the drop-ujan rinrik accompany the team SKC. SKC is the purpose of the team Mudik District of Kuantan, disitulah there Botuang Hamlet in the Village Sangau.

To achieve this Botuang Hamlet take about half an hour from the city center Taluk Kuantan, disinilah there is the temple, the temple is called strong because it is suspected there is a temple there that was very long tebenam. For up to the temple kelokasi SKBC this team go through a small river called Sungai Salo and dilintasi the suspension bridge made of wood, for people who are not through will feel nervous because when he passed wiggle.

Hamlet Botuang this store many Cagar Cultural Objects (BCB), which often found the local people are not deliberately, when to dig up soil and gardening or simply managing the home page, such as jewelry made of gold: rings, necklaces, bracelets, and also hand tailor fishhook. According to the story of local residents, the initial findings Herlita told this, when one of the dream people were not known to dig up a jar containing jewelry, after having dug at the indicated persons unknown in the mimpim. But unfortunately the jar again immerse ourselves, as "When the jar is a dream to have a blood didarahi Black Goat, difficult to obtain because the blood is replaced with the Black Dogs, therefore he returned sink into the ground," said Herlita.

This is justified by the Head of Dusun Jailani Wednesday Botuang, "since then many people who take the land around the former excavation jar is fed to the River Salo, and find the gold, even there was a ring-shaped, ring, eye hook and needle needle, approximately kejadiannya seven tens of years, "said Jailani Wednesday. Because the extraction of a jar was found dibekas terminated upon agreement of figures Kenegerian traditional Koto Lubuk Jambi Gajah Tunggal.

In addition to jewelry made of gold, the most frequently found is the local ancient brick, measuring approximately one and a time span span two square-span adults.

Kuansing focus on physical development, "For this year we focus on the development of physical objects to parawisata Air Terjun Guruh Gemurai in the Village Kasang, District of Kuantan Mudik," explained.

This is justified by Drs. Syafrinal, M.

Syafrinal said when SKBC encountered in the space of the Regional Government Office Complex ( Pemda) Kab. Kuansing, Thursday (23/10) ago.

A large number found Cagar Cultural Objects (BCB) in the Hamlet Botuang, suspected of a strong stand here with the name of the kingdom of Hindu Kingdom of Koto Alang, even though there is no scientific research is revealing. Mahmud Sulaiman (68) Tomo-title Datuk, a prominent indigenous Kenegerian Koto Jambi Lubuk Gajah Tunggal, was a descendent of Raja Alang Koto Kingdom. The temple is located in the Hamlet Botuang is under control as traditional leaders.

If there are people, or researchers who want to know detail about the story of the temple community Botuang recommend Hamlet Datuk Tomo to researchers, "We here do not know much about the history of the temple, that I know that oversees the temple, namely Datuk Tomo," said Wednesday Jailani Head Botuang Hamlet.

There is eternal rainbow in waterfaal Kuansing

Regency Kuantan Singingi located at 1010 - 1020 BT and 00 - 10 LS, with a total area covering approximately 7656.03 Km2. Initially have six districts namely defenitif Mudik Kuantan, Kuantan Tengah, Singingi, Benai, Kuantan Hilir and Cerenti. At this time the number of districts of 12 districts definitive.

The region around 160 km south of Pekanbaru, a hilly area that has a height which varies with the ELEVATION ELEVATION highest reaches 804 meters above sea level. Area is generally hilly. With the Kuantan River there is a quite wide and with River and River Teso Singingi make some of the areas are located in the area of the river plains.

Kuantan Singingi have the potential of tourism is big enough, either y or natural history. The most potential tourism mendarah flesh for the life of society is spur routes. Iven spur path that most held once a year, in order to commemorate the independence day of Indonesia on edge Narosa, Teluk Kuantan. Akan potential but still many others that have not been developed. Potential cultural tour that consists of natural, traditional ceremonies, art, folk games, the things historical, and so forth.

8 July 2008 ago Riau Pos opportunity to visit several areas in which natural lake shrimp in Rawang Village Talontam District Benai, waterfalls Gemurai Guruh Village Kasang Mudik Kuantan District, and seven levels of waterfalls in the Village District of Lubuk Ambacang Hulu Kuantan.

Shrimp Lake Rawang was just a swamps dialiri the creek. After the dam was built, terbentuklah a small lake. Here, some provided by the boat's fiberglass (train water) and two buildings in the middle of the lake. This place will be visited during busy holidays. On a normal day just a small community or youth-mudi seen with foot paddle boat provided.

Up in the area, we are through a bridge that extends from the Market Sungai Kuantan Benai. On the left side and right side of the road to the various areas of oil palm companies and the paper, spread rice field and residential that make eyes look cool.

Air Terjun Guruh Gemurai

This region is Kasang Village, District of Kuantan Mudik a distance of about 10 km from the market Lubuk Jambi. The border-Sumbar Riau is a protected forest area of Bukit Betabuh. But unfortunately bergulirnya since the reform era, the forest was beautiful with the slope-steep hill slopes, now no more left, destroyed due to illegal logging and switch with the rubber gardens community.

When this road to waterfall is in the repair and widening. Some of the uphill road dilandaikan now. Practical, if rainy days, the car will not be able to enter because of slippery roads. Edge of the national road, this area is approximately 2 km through a forest that was planted bald rubber aged between 2-7 years.

Until the location, at the height of the hall will be found a few that can be used for just a moment of rest while enjoying the rural panorama of nature extends to the right we flow with the Kuantan River winding.

So then one kilometer at a location we Terjun Air Guruh Gemurai. From a distance is heard thundering waterfalls as though you're in the condition of heavy rain. Tired of walking also sirna when we began to breathe fresh air, trees that tower, which still remains among terjalnya waterfalls.

In this location is built of concrete facility built in between the cliffs and walk down to the waterfall pond fall. Here are two waterfalls, the main waterfall at almost twenty meters.

Swimming in the waterfall is the main visitors can bathe in it up between the fresh water gemerisik accompanied in the water that flows between the rocks and large trees ridangnya.

On the left towards the waterfall there are some workers who are beraktivitas. According to the Head Office of Tourism Arts and Culture Kuansing Drs Syafrinal MSi, where it is being built and the parking of vehicles musala. ''We are gradually membenahi and complete tourist facilities in the area, this year we focus on the Air Terjun Guruh Gemurai, next year we move to the new Air Terjun Level Seven,''a Syafrinal.

Air Terjun Level Seven

Level Seven Terjun Air Batang Village Koban Lubuk Ambacang Hulu Kuantan District, is one of the beautiful waterfalls and the highest in the Kuansing. This region can be by road and then proceed with using the boat for about 15 minutes to the river headwaters.

From the market toward Lubuk Jambi village Lubuk Ambacang with time of the vehicle about 20 minutes away by road asphalt. Can also enter from the Village Jake, corner post to the village police Serosah, Mudiak Ulo to Kombu Koto village road through the land of the time the vehicle about 40 minutes.

To the Village Lubuk Ambacang, from Koto Kombu us through concrete bridge that extends above the Kuantan River. Travel proceed with the boat had between 15 to 25 people that can be found under the bridge or around the Market Lubuk Ambacang with the rental price Rp150 thousand.

From here we will be the river to the headwaters of the time with about 15 minutes. During the trip that we can enjoy hujaunya trees on a hill with a slope of between 45 degrees to 70 degrees. The width of the river upstream to the decline and debitnya any more downpours.

Not far from the bridge, we will pass the shell island. Water here, such as curved shell. Distance from the water that flows appear calm, but if passed arusnya quite swift, especially when the Sungai Kuantan again subside. Boat must go slowly on the edge of the cliffs and rocks. But if in the water, the resulting flow is not too fast, you can go boating in the middle of the river.

Without us even feel up to the location, boat-dock at any ditambat Pemkab built several years ago with a timber bridge extends over a small river flow waterfall of seven levels.

From the dock we can already see the first waterfall thundering sound of clear water creek. From the first waterfall to the fourth cataract, a visitor can be through the canyon with steep cliffs, through the concrete stairs in between the trees that are still beautiful. Although the day was lunch, but rindangnya trees and waterfalls breezy wind, making the temperature around us feel cool and comfortable long-berlama.

Bambang Wahyu is Jatmiko, producers and leaders of the Mara Studio at that time with two colleagues, Rudi, and Anto visit in the framework of the image to the background video clips and learning rarak godang Singingi Kuantan, which ditaja NGOs Tanjak Rantau, mutter,''God , the great gift of God, I hope this area are still maintained its natural beauty and can continue to enjoy the community,''Bambang call.

Bambang hope not without reason. Maraknya illegal logging activities these days, has destroyed the joints of each natural forests. No matter the protected forest, for example, which occurred in the area of protected forest Betabuh Hill, the location where waterfalls thunder gemurai. The only remaining forest in the area falls, the rest be destroyed and planted rubber.

With the wide-awake and they take pictures with a variety of positions. They directed the camera to each groove-fossa waterfalls fall menghempas water underneath. Once satisfied and enjoy taking pictures of the water level of the first and fourth with a different altitude, between 5-15 meters, the trip was resumed.

This is where the adventure begins, when we pass the fourth level to the level of the seventh. Each visitor must walk between the cliffs, the cliffs kemiringannya between 45 to 85 degrees. For nature lovers, this is a challenge as the terrain in order to generate diverting adrenalin.

Climbing through a canyon and bergantungan between root-root trees, enough energy drain. The distance between the waterfalls in the range of 50-100 meters. Although the lead dust that is quite heavy, but this will not make a bored visitor. Because each waterfall has a characteristic that is different and beautiful.

After the sixth pass waterfalls, not how far the best dijumpailah its waterfalls, with the height reached 30 meters more. Really stunning, in a pond waterfall is envisaged two layers rainbow, results from the sun bias light sprinkling of water which resulted in a gale blowing.

We only arrived in the pond water of the seventh. Heavy burden, and reduce the risk - for the previous few of us slip and squeezed between the large stones
causing a bruise, bruised foot, such as experienced Anto, Mara Studio crew should tertatih-tatih running due to a bruised foot dideritanya - we just enjoy the beauty of it down.

This adventure is different from the Jakarta Post in 1995 ago. Jakarta Post at the time to peak of the most high. However, it must be paid all costs, with the struggle of a quite tiring, climb steep rocks in between. Mistaken will fall slightly to tens of meters down. From the top of the altitude, when we look to the bottom, swimming in the waterfalls of the seven eternal rainbow that extends to the form of a circle.

Many Visited

According to Eri, Lubuk Ambacang village residents who work as tenant boat to the waterfall, almost every day there are people who come to this region. Peak of the crowd called Eri, during bath balimau event held one day before the Ramadan. ''If the events balimau bath, the number of people coming for almost a thousand people,''a Eri.

If the usual day-to-day, rented a boat at most two, but in the bath balimau that, there are seven boat that is ready to take. Have had the boat 15 to 25 passengers. Each boat, called Eri, up to eight times repeatedly picking passengers under the bridge Lubuk Ambacang .***

Gold mining in Kuansing Without Permission

In the meeting room coordination activities PETI impact, in the Office of Regional Development Planning Board (Bappeda) of Riau Province, late last February, revealed how semrawutnya settlement persolan PETI in Kuangsing. Some officers who seek an excuse for not menertibkan PETI. "Can-can house burnt," he said.

PETI is now a threat to the life of the people who rely on their lives from the fishery sector. That's why keramba farmers, farmers' ponds pembenihan people, even Central Fish seed Teso confess activities already-stagnant stagnating. Even the research results of water quality in the Central Fish seed in the Teso and the flow of children indicates the location of River sekitaran heavy metals such as Mercury / Air mercury (Hg) far diambang standard of quality. In time, the metal mercury will terakumulasi on the biota, both plant and hewannya.

This condition must be diwaspadai. Many reports related to the case of Mercury, and is known as Minamata disease. Minamata disease is a disease caused by a nerve poison metilmerkuri. Early symptoms are anesthetized limb and the area around the heel, interference senses and difficulty in doing activities seharihari. In addition, patients also experienced a lack of coordination between the nerve, weakness and tremor, the ability to speak and slow and weak ability to view and hearing less. Disease worsen and cause paralysis, movement outside of awareness, brain damage and death.

At the light, people complain not so immune mouth sensitive to temperature and taste, the nose does not smell sensitive, easily tired and get headaches often. In the heavy, sarafnya people fell ill, including the brain, so it can not control the movement of the hands and feet, to deaf ears ring, the eyes narrow perspective, and talking difficult. It is chilling that many babies born with congenital defects. Metil mercury is dangerous for pregnant women.

In the story, July 2003 penambang gold Wonogiri in the area of traditional use of white mercury to separate gold from other metals. Mercury is silvery white and the liquid gold will be binding, while the other metals will tersisihkan. Mixture of mercury and gold are placed in a cup made of ceramic. In the cup dihembuskan flame. The distance between the flame with the nose approximately 10 cm. At the time of the flame to burn a mixture of mercury and gold, mercury vapor and liquid metal gold behind. At the time of the metal mercury vapor, mercury vapor is very possible to be terhisap by workers. If exposure continues this will lead to death and poisoned.

PETI activities in Kuansing fact has long been the case. But now condition worse again. Given that the perpetrators of PETI in Jambi also Hijrah to Kuansing. Given that since two years ago, activity in the River Batanghari stopped by all in the Province is related. Due to the threat from the Ministry of Marine Affairs and Fisheries memfinalti Jambi and Fisheries, that the funds will not run down the State Budget for the development activities have keramba while PETI.

PETI Maraknya and realize the impact of bad events for the environment and man, the Head of Fisheries District Kuansing already reported the matter to the local officials. Various coordination meetings in the District has now done. Until finally there are eight points in the agreement Pemkab Kuansing. The idea must be stopped PETI, penambang will be built, and the local penambang will dialihkerjakan to other sectors. End of the specified limit of 31 March 2008.

In general, Java tribes inhabit the region are located in rural areas or plantations.
Formal education is a process of education for all levels from elementary school (SD) to universities. Regency Kuantan Singingi have the potential in the field of education. Potential will not produce the optimal output if not managed properly.

Basically the development in the health sector aims to provide health services as simple, equitable and affordable. One of them is to provide health facilities, especially health, Puskesmas and Puskesmas around because they are able to reach all sections of the community to remote areas.

Who are the Kuantan Shoreline

At the time of discussion and debate cabby friends with students at the Art Students Kuansing spur line of Yogyakarta, as a rather senior person (not a senior beneran soalnya many more super senior) I always asked by friends with the students the questions that are difficult I answered, and I often terpojok ... but I am happy with the cultural "maota" (discussion), here seen from the critical nature of their current reality, they keingintauan high ... hopefully they will be the generation reformer ... Student life! !.

Although busy with my affairs S.2 lecture me, but once in a week I take time for friends to discuss the student Kuansing ( "maota"). On a night I "maota" again with them, there is a rumor always tease my brain "bang ... we Kuansing this person, does not seem to have a cultural identity, we actually do this from the bang? If our language is similar to the Minang language, but we do not want in the Minang people, if we said the Malay language in terms of ... we are very much different with them. Arts obvious character Minang culture, art and culture is clearly Malay character ... then we kok gray? What we do not have a culture of its own character, I spontaneously answered "Kuantan our people" is not Malay Minang not.

At present there is no accurate information about the origin of people who live along the Kuantan River, there is also the term that people Kuantan "Barajo ka Indragiri, Ba ka Minangkabau adat." This term is only because I think that there are cultural phenomena, such as language, customs, arts and culture. But here I want to convey that the traditional Minangkabau tombo that heredity is told from mouth to mouth is not received by the sense me. In the tombo Minangkabau adat, as if that was the person who first set foot on the island ameh (Sumatra) is Maharajo dirajo (Sang Sapurba / Dapunta Hyang) kononnya who sailed on the boiler sabuah nan and anchored at the top of the peak langgapuri that he said at that time Mount Merapi is having a speech impediment and the mountain duck Singgalang of chickens having a speech impediment. From the top of the mountain merapilah fathers Minangkabau down and then spread to the Kuantan area. For more details, I write the following custom tombo (in the form of Minang classical literature):

Baked-in security gatok
dikirai-long strip dibaka
Tatangguak fish gulamo
spelled out in the atok -
dikirai-long strip dipapa
dikambang the legend LAMO

Takalo maso dahulunyo

Alley in niniak fathers kito

in the legend LAMO
sapiah balahan tigo row
Sajurai ka banda cino
sajurai ka banda ruhum
sajurai ka island ameh nangko

Parties in the Sutan Marajo in Rajo
taniaik in the heart

LAMO boiler deck balayia mak

Dimano titiak palito

(grandmother moyangnya so dear leader marijan times ...)

Ka Basentak down under
la tibo diguguak ampang
sinan lagundi nan baselo
sinan island bataratak
sabalun bakorong with kampuang
sabalun bakoto jo nagari

Maso badeta-deta upiah

Manuruik barih balabeh customary

From sirangkak nan badangkang
hinggo buayo putiah daguak

Sailiran stem sikilang
hinggo lauik nan sadidi

Pasisia banda sapuluah
AIA hinggo taratak black
to ka tanjuang simalidu
Nine pucuak jambi groove

Well apart from the beautiful words of classic literature, we need to dig up the truth that brought the news. Before I continue I want to write custom wither following maxim:
Let mudiki history to upstream
where tersekat perceptivity elakkan
heirdom grandmother who had a first -
same dibuhul, tied together
sebaris not forget that
setitik no missing
the diarah, be the
firm grip night and day

Now we review the meaning of these tombo Minangkabau adat. Tombo also mean the story, the story in the tradition is clearly stated that:
(1). the ancestor of the Minangkabau Maharajo dirajo which is anchored on the Mount Merapi Langgapuri Peak (with the presumption that the island of Sumatra still tertutupi sea) that appear dipermukaan Cuma areas is high. (2) Mobility of the population started from Mount Merapi and then continue down the low kedaerah follow susutnya sea water (earth basentak naiak, langik basentak down) and continue to develop and then divided into three luhak (region) Tanah Datar, Agam, and Lima Puluh. Then to the coast (area Kuantan, Kampar, Jambi) and Pasisia banda sapuluah (now Coastal South).

In my opinion the first points on the news (1) above is the news that a Ngada and tales of the first and perhaps he said at the time berlabuhnya Sutan Marajo dirajo when it floods in the era of Prophet Noah as Does not make sense, because the Prophet Noah only make one boat (ship). If we review the terms of the science of astronomy and geology, that was when Jagad highway because the explosion was tremendous. Initially, the temperature of things including the earth, the sky is very hot, and then freeze the water and the sea recede because most of the water frozen in the poles. And I think that the man (Adam and Eve) is still in heaven or not created. So in short the first points on the news can not be accepted scientifically.

News that the two points I think that is the kingdom of Minangkabau ekspansinya and to the surroundings (including Kuantan, Jambi, and Kampar). Nah! Now it appears a question "the ancestors of the Minangkabau down the mountain Merapi clearly not reasonable, in fact they where?". Before I express my hypothetical explanation, I will cite Buya Hamka passed in the seminar noted in the History of Riau in Riau prakarsai by the University on 20 to 25 May 1975.

Sumatra in the history of the middle period, and some kingdoms, including the Pre Sriwijaya, Sriwijaya, Darmawangsa, Pagarruyung, Temasik, Riau, Lingga, Kandis and Kuantan, Indragiri, Siak Sri Indrapura, and some of the other kingdoms (Hamka passed, 1975) . Not easy for us to know the truth need to historical evidence is strong that whether in the form of inscription, temples, and so forth. Buya Hamka passed in the seminar is only the history of Islam in Central Sumatra and does not criticize in depth about the history of the pre Sriwijaya period, Sriwijaya, Kandis and Kuantan.

According Buya Hamka passed (1975) reviews the history of the Riau seyogyanyalah we insafi that the nation is proof Riau Malay, Riau Malay who bred, or called the Melayu Asli, difficult to find words such as Malay proverb "look for lice in ijuk". Perhaps the native Malay only tinggalsuku-backward tribes who still live in the forest, as Talang mamak and Kubu people. The person named Riau Malay, in the era of greatness Imperium Malay, since Pasai era, the era of Malacca, until the time of Riau including Johor, Malay is not named because of the authenticity of the blood, but has long lived under the patronage of kings pennon Malay.

Even the king itupun many are not native Malay, but Malay dirajakan by. Riau Malay come from tribes throughout the archipelago and the Malay peninsula a strong brave, like a rogue looking for livelihood. They come from Malacca, Johor, from all Semeanjung, Bugis, Bawean island, Minangkabau, Banjar, and the Sulu Islands (now Philippines). From here it is clear that Malay is a person who came and also because it mentioned that the Malays have also come from the Minangkabau. But the questions I "which comes from the Minangkabau people?". Has not been missed.

Now we review the opinion of others about the history of Malay wither site online ( There is mentioned that the Malay history includes a wide range of dimensions, with the long range. If the kingdom of Kutai considered as the oldest kingdom in the Malay culture, the initial phase is about Malay history to centuries-4 or 5 M. Trace-jekanya can be tracked through the historical, both barupa manuscript, inscription, oral history and artefacts. In the site mentioned that the Malay history is divided into three categories: the history of the kingdom, manuscript history, heritage and history, such as temples, mosques, palaces and tombs.
Then our knowledge of the history of the kingdom in the area of Kuantan. There are two kingdoms, namely the kingdom of the Kingdom of Kandis and Kuantan.

Kandis Kingdom
Not known exactly, when the kingdom Kandis. That, there is the kingdom and the kingdom of the ancient existence precede Kuantan. Country Kertagama in the book, there are the names of areas in Sumatra, including in the kingdom of Majapahit. Kandis is one area that disebut.Ibukota Kandis kingdom is estimated to be in the village Sangau (Kuantan District Mudik) which is now called the Temple. According to the online site Malay temple as proof of the existence of the kingdom during the first Kandis. Place can still be found in ruins of buildings and ancient bricks. Suspected, is the brick ruins of temples of worship. Wither online opinion according to me is not the right temple which is referred to the dock or the port of the Kingdom of Kandis, Kandis Kingdom and the center itself is located in the area of Bukit Bertabuh, who still have not found the location.

Kandis is a kingdom that stands alone, because the area is fertile and spices, like pepper. Not much that can be known about this kingdom Kandis, especially after defeated by Jambi and not known exactly when the attack occurred. Attacks from Bali that is estimated to overthrow the kingdom Kandis. Kandis but does not vanish simply because the kingdom of Kuantan and then show them (wither online).

Kingdom of Kuantan
According to the online story of the Malay kingdom of Kuantan can dirunut travels from the Sapurba. In the journey to bring back Malay nation, the fleet Sapurba diba in Bintan. Here, he wed her son, Sang Nila Utama with putrid kingdom Bintan. Next, the Sapurba return trip kea rah proceed southwest to explore the new area, where the Malay nation. Finally, the fleet arrived in the estuary Sapurba major rivers, the Indragiri River. The entourage Sapurba continue to sail upstream to the river, until a while, rombongannya running out of water, while river water is still salty. Then the Sapurba ordered followers to make a circle large rattan seukuran shield. After the cane is so, the Sapurba put it above the surface of the salty river water, then immerse the feet into the circle rattan. Suddenly, the river water that was changed to fresh salty. Perhaps, the events occurred didaerah Sapat, Indragiri Hilir. The entourage Sapurba take secukupnya water supplies, and then continue with the voyage back menghulu Kuantan River. Finally, they arrived in the kingdom of Kuantan in central Sintuo (village Sangau Now). At that time the kingdom has not Kuantan King. Therefore the arrival Sapurba greeted by happy people Kuantan, both the Council, community leaders, and the proletariat. Then they lift the Sapurba become king, with the requirements, the Sapurba are willing to kill the Naga Sakti Muna who have damage to farm property rakyat.Sang Sapurba then ordered hulubalangnya, Pemasku haunter to kill the dragon with the start sundang (modern swords) of the Sapurba. Commander Permasku haunter successfully kill the dragon, so the Sapurba was a king with a degree in Kuantan "Trinity Tri Buana." With this event, Kuantan has a king again and continue the legacy (quoted from wither online).

Kandis Kingdom according to the information is located in Lubuk Jambi (Kuantan District Mudik), while the Kingdom is based in Kuantan Koto tuo across Teluk Kuantan. Now we return to the question "who Kuantan original / genuine coming from where?". Based on the story above the Kuantan is not derived from native Malay and Minangkabau. Kandis actual existence of the Kingdom at this time until the offspring inherit the legacy-there is still residual Kandis. This fact can be expressed and will be published if you want to know the truth by even Sumatra Riau in general there must be honesty and commitment from the parties related to honestly reveal about the actual Kandis.
Answers questions as brother-sister Singingi Kuantan Students who have in Yogyakarta, that our people are not coming from Kuantan Minangkabau, and not derived from the Malay. According to the actual history of Kandis, is that "Kandis is the oldest kingdom in Sumatra" according to a story from generation to generation among the descendants of the kingdom Kandis Kandis that it has been since the century to 2 BC, long before the kingdom of Kutai, Pagarruyung and other kingdoms. Term in the tombo customary Minagkabau "Mount Merapi of duck eggs, and mountain Singgalang of chicken eggs" in the top of the hill at the highest didaerah Hill Bertabuh not far from the center of the Kingdom of Kandis. So before all the best (not just the story), it is necessary to conduct the research field of Archeology or archeology objects. Hypothetical is that our forefathers it (the Kuantan) the actual start of civilization on the island of Sumatra (which has often changed its name: the island-percha, Swarna Dwipa Island, Gold Island, Island of Andalas, and now the island of Sumatra). Hopefully, this answer can give a picture that we have a culture of its own character.
Hopefully the truth will be established with scientific facts. For the brothers who deepens Sciences Archeology I think a golden opportunity to prove our country's past.

Pacu Jalur,Kuantan Singingi Culture

History and Development
Kuantan Singingi is an administrative area which is included in the Riau Province. Region has many rivers. Geographical conditions that, in turn, make the majority of people need transportation as a means jalur1 Then, path-lines appear which are beautifully carved, carvings such as the head of snake, crocodile, or tiger, both in the stomach and selembayung it. In addition, with more equipment parachute, rigging, shawl, the middle pole (gulang-gulang) and lambai-lambai (the helmsman standing). These changes mark the function as well as a path not just for the sake of transport equipment, but also shows social identity. For, the only ruler, noble, and progenitor-progenitor pathways that make up the drive. Development of the next (approximately 100 years later), the function not only as a means of transportation and a symbol of social status, but diadu speed through a race. And, by the people that race stempat referred to as a "spur jajur".

Initially held in spur line villages along the Kuantan River to commemorate the day of Islam, as Prophet Muhammad SAW Maulid, Idul Fitri, or New Year 1 Muharram. When each race is not always followed by the investiture. That is, there are villages that provide gifts and who does not provide any. Competition that does not provide the prize ceremony ended with a meal together. The type of food is a traditional local food, such as: konji, godok, lopek, paniaran, goats, Lida, and fruit doll. Meanwhile, the race berhadiah, it must provide four marewa2 that vary in size. I have great size and a great champion IV have the most small size. However, these gifts are no longer marewa form but the form of livestock (cattle, buffalo, or goat).

When the Dutch began to enter the area Riau (around 1905), precisely in the area that is now Bay City Kuantan, they take advantage of spur lines in celebrating birthdays of Queen Wilhelmina who fell in each of 31 August. As a result, the spur line is no longer celebrated in the feast-day Muslims. Teluk Kuantan population even considers each Anniversary celebration of Queen Wilhelmina of the coming new year. Therefore, until now still have mention of the spur line as a spur tambaru. Activities spur line was stopped in the era of Japan. However, the independence of spur lines back regularly held to commemorate the anniversary of independence of the Republic of Indonesia (17 - Agustusan).

Spur lines only done by the men aged between 15 - 40 years in beregu. Any number of gang members between 40 - 60 people (depending on size of route). Members of a spur line is called the child, consists of: carpenter, carpenters concang (commander, command grantor), carpenters waist (helmsman), carpenters onjai (our rhythm at the helm with a swing-goyangkan body) and the craftsman who dance helping carpenters onjai stress that a balanced path berjungkat-jungkit regular and rhythmic. In addition to players, competition in the spur line and the referee also have jury duty, which oversees the road and set the race winner.

Place Game
Spur lines are usually conducted in Sungai Batang Kuantan. As has been said above, Sungai Batang Kuantan which is located between the District of Hulu Kuantan in the upstream and downstream in the District Cerenti, has been used as a shipping line path since the early 17th century. And, in this river also spur the race route was first done. Meanwhile, the arena of competition spur line to follow the flow of Sungai Batang Kuantan, with the length of the track about 1 km is marked with three piling.

Tools Games
Equipment in the game spur path, of course, the path that is made from the stem wood intact, without be-half, cut-cut-through, or linked. Path length between 25 - 30 meters, with the middle of the room width 11.25 meters. Parts of the line consists of: (1) luan (direction), (2) talingo (front of the ear); (3) panggar (seat); (4) pornik (stomach); (5) Timbo room (where the water draw ); (6) talingo back; (7) kamudi (the driver); (8) lambai-lambai/selembayung (grip tukan onjor); (9) pandaro (seed line), (10) hose (seat pedayung ); (11) selembayung (end of the path carved) and (13) panimbo (air scoop). The path is also equipped with a paddle for each player.

Selembayung edge and the body lines are engraved and given color splendor. Motifnya diverse as: runner-suluran, geometrical, wave, and even a bad aircraft. Each path has a name like: Naga Sakti, Gajah Tunggal, Rawang Shrimp, Kompe windy, Bomber, Pelita, New Order, King Kinantan, swish Nago Liar, Lion Sungai Pinang, Kuantan, rowing in unison, Kerapatan Jati, Panggogar Nature, Tuah in Kampuang Godang in Rantau, Ratu Dewa and others. The objective of the engraving, coloring, and the name on each line is to be able to "be different" from others.

To be able to make a path-race that usually represents the village, district or districts, must go through a long process and involves many people. As a process, making sure the path is done gradually and continuously. The following are the stages that must be done in making a boat by a person called Kuantan Singingi path.

The first thing done is a plan of making path through consensus or rapek village which was attended by various elements such as traditional leaders, scholars, youth and the mother. Meetings are usually led by a village leader or traditional leaders. When agreement has been reached, the next activity is to select the type of wood. The tree is searched banio or kulim kuyiang a length between 25 - 30 meters with a diameter between 1 ½ - 2 meters. Both types of trees in addition to a strong, waterproof, have also held "penunggunya". After a tree that meets the requirements specified, the logging is done. However, before such a ceremony is held to the "watchman" tree that the tree was not lost on unseen.

Wood that has been disemah by diviner, next ditebang with ax and mattock. After that, the timber diabung (cut) edges according to a certain size in accordance with the long path that will be made. After diabung both ends, and then peeled the skin of wood and carved in the direction, ear, and stomach. If the path is established, then the next step is to flatten the front (pendadan), ie, the top of the wood stretching from the base to the tip. Then followed the phase mencaruk or punch and finish the wood with a thickness in particular. Next menggaliak to reverse or invert and return path to be formed and mashed. This work requires a careful calculation of the thickness must always maintain the path to be able to balance while in the water. Mengukurnya among other ways by making holes or hold the drill and then closed again with a kind of pivot. Once established, the path and then reversed again and the process continued with the last course and make the rudder. If the direction and the rudder has been established, then the path will be taken to the village to be smoked and accompanied by the ritual maelo path. Before the route was launched to the river, there is a ritual that is aimed so that more channels can sail with the good when it is in the water.

Game Rules
Spur line can be divided into several levels, namely: (1) spur antarbanjar or village, (2) spur antardesa or villages, and (3) spur antarkecamatan in the region Sengingi Kuantan. Rules in the third race spur levels are quite easy path, the path the team can reach the finish first team from another, expressed as the winner. Pertandingan spur route is usually done with two systems, namely: the system of competition and autumn to determine the winner of the first to fourth and ten large.

Path Games
The race, both antardusun, antardesa, and antarkecamatan, beginning with a cannon blast. Gun is used because when the whistle will not be heard by the race, considering the extent of the arena and spur many spectators who witnessed the race. In the boom first-line path that was specified in the order will fall in line with the start of each squad member has been in the path. In the second crack, they will be in the ready position (guard) for the rowing scull. And, after the cannon blast referee for the time when, every team will paddle through the race track that has been determined. As a note, the size and capacity of lines and the number of children pacunya (participants) in this race not be, because that determines victory lane a lot more from the magical power of the wood is used as power lines and the diviner kesaktian in "control" path.

In the match lines, killed when implementing the system, then the losers must not be played back consecutively. Meanwhile, the winners will diadu get back to the main winner. However, when the system uses half the competition, each team will play several times and eventually the team to always win the race will be the last juaranya.

Cultural values
Cultural value of the spur line is: hard work, quickness, stamina, cooperation and sportivitas. The value of hard work reflected the spirit of the players who try to track that path can precede another shift. Quickness and tenacity values are reflected from the techniques that made by members of a gang in order to run the lines go quickly and not be lost. Cooperation is reflected in the value of team members who strive together to be able to control the line go faster and win the race. Value sportivitas reflected not only the attitude of the players who does not skew during the game, but also would like to receive defeat with spacious chest. (gufron)

Pangean Martial Arts

Be calculated from Singingi Regency Kuantan, Riau Province, is an area called Pangean. Of origin where known muasal silek pangean to the corner of the country.

In history, the book Kulik Japan (legend) Pangean land, this land of civilization began from a hill in the Pangean called Bukit Koto now Sangkar Puyuh Highest Pangean. The name is taken from the hill that is shaped like Sangkar quail.
Initially, Hill Sangkar Puyuh be surrounded stem manau (a kind of a big cane) grow in the base of the stalk of mushroom. Manau this circle according to the clockwise direction in the mid-foot mountain and ends at the base of the beginning of the growth. By local residents, the fungus that grows on the base manau this fungus called upeh. Because it contains a toxic death, by the fungus upeh destroyed.

As over time, by the local people used to grow this fungus as the location of the mosque. This is the first mosque in the Pangean estimated standing on the 17th century. Bukit Sangkar government originally held by Datuk Puyuh Width dado, a rib and Datuk Datuk Bandaro White. According to one resident, this is the progenitor three fathers Pangean people. "Datuk dado width is very strong and authoritative. He was able to squeeze into liquid iron, "said resident expertise is mengambarkan Datuk dado width. "In addition, evidence is successful ketangguhannya kill a known insurgent ghost Pak Buru. Acts of the grave is this ghost Pak Buru measuring four meters which is located about one hundred meters west Koto Pangean.

In the hands of the leadership of the three progenitor Pangean Village is growing. Moreover, when the country Pangean also diramaikan neighboring country by immigrants, such as land Toar (now Mount Toar District) which is located on the upstream of the country, and also of Minangkabau migrants who flee to this region. "At that time the kingdom Pagaruyung attacked by the Majapahit kingdom Adityawarman throne," said residents. Combination of some migrants is then alleged to establish some tribes in the Pangean far.

Pangean Soil persilatannya with the famous, the name that is not foreign to the pesilat in Kuantan. Silat is inherited from generation to generation by the teacher of Silat Pangean known by the name Induak Barompek. "If then the name sounded foreign silat Pangean for common people can dimaklumi. Because silat Pangean more authenticity in order to cover themselves awake, "said one of his teachers who are reluctant to Pangean silat called his name.

Because that is closed, there is now a lot of confusion about the story of origin of Silat Pangean. It's said that silat originating from Lintau, West Sumatra. But this story be debated by one of the Induak Barompek. He also explains the origin and birth muasal silat Pangean.

The story begins when one of the country's population Rantau Kuantan Bagindo Rajo the title went to Datuk Betabuh act in Lintau, West Sumatra. Kepergiannya aims to study the Islamic religion and the arts silat as to defend religious. At the time kepergiannya to Lintau of that, his wife Bagindo Rajo, Gadi Ome, who still live in the Pangean dream in sleep. In dreams, spirits were Gadi Ome sheik Maulana Ali who came from the holy land of Mecca.

In addition to meeting sheikh Ali, Gadi Ome also met his wife sheik named Ali Halimatusakdiah. From Halimatusakdiah, Gadi Ome science learning silat. "So Bagindo Rajo and Gadi Ome is the teacher who first teaches silat Pangean. Therefore the Pangean silat there are two different nature. The one rough, hard and one soft, bland but death, "said one Induak Barompek, this successor silat.

According to this teacher Pangean silat, silat Pangean streams originating from the rough Bagindo Rajo, while the software comes from Gadi Ome. "Silat Pangean not come from Lintau. Because science silat earned Bagindo Rajo Lintau in far less than that obtained by his wife. So the husband learned of his wife. With the first students Gadi ome is Bagindo Rajo, "said the teacher.

Along the way, the pair husband and wife began lowering their expertise silat. Initially, silat is only taught in the family. Gadi Ome down according to ethnic silat knowledge of him (matrilineal). While Bagindo Rajo knowledge to decrease the nephew of the seed of the mother.
Datuk Untuik is the first person to be students Bagindo Rajo. Datuk Untuik was a student because Bagindo Rajo has a moral duty to his father, Tan fierce. Kala Bagindo Rajo demand knowledge to Lintau, Tan who is a ferocious guard Gadi Ome at home. From Datuk Untuik, science Silat Pendekar again revealed to the master, Maliputi, Pak Ngacak, and Menti Kejan. After that, the Penghulu Sati, and Datuk crookback Lubuk Jambi's act of coming.

The four students first and then Datuk Untuik this was a Induak Barompek. Highest degree used in persilatan this until now. They are groups of teachers on duty to maintain the purity and lower Pangean science silat. "Until now Induak barompek has changed many people, but still use the name Induak Barompek," said one Induak Barompek.

ON first, silat Pangean only taught to the children and niece. Because of this silat is closed and is taught by stealth. Until then the more people who want to learn silat Pangean. At the time, Penghulu Tribal Caromin, Pakomo the title Datuk Datuk Penghulu Sati, ask the teacher silat silat that science is taught to all the children in the country Pangean niece.

"Terms of the agreement and based on consensus. With the rules is not all science silat taught to students. Sapicik a (small, red) belonging to the teacher remained on the teacher, and a handful are given and taught to many people, "she explains the rules made penghulu country.

In achieving development goals silat and culture in order to preserve the community Pangean, penghulu customary to open the page in addition to silat Mesjid Koto High. Here, a customs office was established. In addition, in order of equity skills silat, silat teachers Pangean to consent to the silat dibukanya in each row. In its application, Pangean silat consists of games and pergelutan. Silat dance welcome welcome attacks often played in this page. This is different in teaching silat to the top-level students who performed at home.

In the movement, known as the Pangean silat movement soft and supple. However any movement save the effect is death. Because not all people are free to learn. To learn silat Pangean have knowledge of the requirements must be met before the student. Terms of the form of broken-hearted, the blind, the dead and the debtor.

"The meaning is to be broken heart that is not good. Butakan thought to kejahiliyahan. Careful not to turn off a malignancy. Ax prohibited and run good. And each of these requirements in accordance with the teachings of Islam, "said Muhardi, Pendekar Loma, one of the descendants of silat from his wife Datuk Rajo Bagindo.

Since digulirkannya up to now, the inheritance of the old professorship in silat Pangean still valid. In addition, given that the title was different between the offspring of Bagindo Rajo and Gadi Ome. Datuk Rajo Bagindo descent using the term progenitor, while the descendants of Gadi Ome Pendekar title.

Even the story Pangean silat teacher, a teacher may not yet buried dead time before the appointed person that will replace the position. And even if there ravelment in determining, the re-sorted set of its history. "Err on the end of the road back to the base of the road," said one teacher silat this berpetuah.

Now, over time silat Pangean attention of knowledgeable. Not only in the region Kuantan, but the start is known in Indragiri Riau and other areas. Even the influence of silat Pangean also grown in Malaysia and the United States. "In the United States silat with the name of this present tussle Meetings Footwashing Hand Weapon (Peratekisendo)," said Induak Barompek then.
