Temanggung Regency

Temanggung Regency is a regency in Central Java Province in which its capital is in Temanggung Sub-district and borders with Kendal regency in the north, Semarang regency in the east, Magelang regency in the south, and Wonosobo regency in the west.


The history of Temanggung is always associated with a King of Ancient Mataram kingdom named Rakai Pikatan. The name Pikatan itself is used to call an area that is the location of the spring at the Mudal village in Temanggung Sub-district. Here also lies the ruin of ancient rock relics believed to be the ‘petilasan’ or resting place of king Rakai Pikatan.

Temanggung’s ancient record history was first to be recorded on the inscription of Wanua Tengah III in 908 AD which was found by residents of Dunglo Hamlet, Gandulan Village, Kaloran Temanggung Sub-district in November 1983. The inscription depicts that Temanggung was originally in the form of a kademangan or a village government which were “gemah ripah loh jinawi” means abundant natural wealth (which is a phrase that is an expression to describe the state of the land) where part of the region is Pikatan.

Here founded the Hindu Vihara or monastery by the sister of the king of Ancient Mataram Rahyangta I Hara. the King is Rahyangta Rimdang (King Sanjaya) who ascended the throne in 717 AD (Mantyasih Stone Inscription). It was by the heir to the throne of Rake Panangkaran who ascended the throne on November 27, 746 AD, that Vihara Pikatan obtains a crook in Sima Paddyfield. Which is could be related to the Gondosuli inscription where there is a clear picture that from Temanggung Regency extends westward to Bulu sub-district and beyond is a fertile and serene region (it marked where Pikatan Vihara is).

King Sanjaya's successor who was Rakai Panangkaran whom ascended the throne on 27 November 746 AD, reigned for approximately 38 years. In Angling Dharma legend, the palace is thought to be in Kedu (Bojonegoro village) because it was in this (Bojonegoro) village that ruins of a relic was found and it was also this (Kedu) region that a village named Kademangan village was found as well.

Rakai Panangkaran's successor was then Rakai Panunggalan who ascended the throne on April 1, 784 and ended on March 28, 803. Rakai Panunggalan enthroned in Panaraban which is now Parakan sub-district. Here also found another ‘Kademangan’ village and unidentied ashes in Pakurejo Village in Bulu sub-district.

Furthermore, Rakai Panunggalan was then replaced by Rakai Warak who (is estimated to) live in Tembarak Sub-district. Here found ruins around Menggoro Mosque, the ruins of a temple, and another Kademangan village as well.

Rakai warak's successor is Rakai Garung who reigned on January 24, 828 AD to February 22, 847 AD. The new king was an expert in the building of temples for astronomy science (astrology) purpose. He created a calendar system for cropping purposes that is still used today. It was because of his knowledge and his intelligence that the King of Sriwijaya of that time want to use it to create a temple. But Rakai Garung did not aid the King of Sriwijaya, even though his life was being threatened. Then Rakai Garung was replaced by Rakai Pikatan who then settled in Temanggung. Here found the stone inscription of Tlasri and Wanua Tengah III. There are many other ruins of ancient objects such as Lumpang Joni and sculptures scattered in Temanggung Sub-district area. Here also found another Demangan village.

From the book history, I Wayan badrika, mentioned that Rakai Pikatan as the king of Ancient Mataram wish to control the region of Central Java. But Rakai Pikatan did not dare to directly seize the power from King of Bala Putra Dewa as the ruler of Syailendra kingdom.

Therefore, to achieve that purpose, Rakai Pikatan make a strategic move by marrying Dyah Pramudha Wardani, the elder sister of King Bala Putra Dewa, with the aim to have a strong influence in the kingdom of Syailendra. In addition, Rakai Pikatan also amass the strengths that exist in both of the region, both the soldiers and senopati and also raise the fund which was derived from demang as tributes. He managed to gain support from the Demang Gong, that was entrusted to collect tribute for the other demang, who was also has the widest area, Demang Gong.

Rakai Pikatan gathered an army and went to the kingdom of Syailendra on May 27, 855 AD to attack. In this attack, Rakai Pikatan was assisted by Kayu Wangi.

After the successful attack, he handed over the kingdom to be under the rule of his trusted follower who is of the rank of demang. From the word demang and kademangan area then came the name Ndemanggung which eventually changed to the name Temanggung.

Temanggung's historical record comes from:

  1. Wanua Tengah III Inscription, Archaeological Period year 1994 page 87 explains that Rakai Pikatan declared dead on 27 May 855 M.
  2. Siwagrha inscription (translation by Casparis, Archaeological Period year 1956 page 288), explain that Rakai Pikatan resigned in 856 M.
  3. Nalanda inscription year 860 (translation by Casparis, Archaeological Period year 1956 page 289 - 294), explain that Balaputra god defeated war by Rakai Pikatan and Kayu Wangi.
  4. Wanua Tengah III Inscription, Archaeological Period year 1994 page 89, Rakai Kayu Wangi ascended the throne on 27 May 855 M.
  5. In I Wayan Badrika's book on page 154, Pramudya Wardani married Rakai Pikatan and ascended the throne in the year 856 AD. Balaputra Dewa was defeated by Pramudha wardani assisted by Rakai Pikatan (Ratu Boko stone Inscription) in 856 AD From the note above, can be concluded that in the battle against Balaputra Dewa, Rakai Pikatan was assisted his son Kayu Wangi.

After the war, Rakai Pikatan raised his son Kayu Wangi to be his successor in the Ancient Mataram kingdom, he then resigned and left Mataram to marry Pramudha Wardani.

Based on the Decree of the Commissioner General of the Dutch East Indies, Number 11 On April 7, 1826, Raden Ngabehi Djojonegoro was designated as the Regent of Menoreh based in Parakan, with the title of Raden Tumenggung Aria Djojonegoro.

Secondly, Menoreh District a region as the origin of the name of Menoreh Regency, has long been merged with Magelang regency, so the name of Menoreh Regency is not appropriate anymore.

Fattening Beef Caffe (Beef Caffle Fatlenty)

a. Background

Temanggung Regency is an agrarian region where most of the population’s livelihood are as farmers. Total agricultural land reaches 60,956 Ha with a temperature between 18°C - 28°C and rainfall between 1,000 - 3,100 mm/year. The fertile soil is responsible for most of the plants to grow well.

This condition is widely utilized by farmers to raise beef cattle because it is easy to get the grass for food. Livestock business is now increasingly in demand, especially fattening beef cattle. In Temanggung Regency, other than easy to get feed, the land to maintain the herd is still available quite a lot. The Government of Temanggung Regency itself is currently providing the former excavated mining land C, located in Kwadungan Gunung Village and Kwadungan Jurang Village for the fattening beef cattle project. The project is aimed at attracting investors both domestically and internationally as well as to provide jobs for the surrounding community population.

b. Potency

Beef cattle fattening business has a good potential with consideration as follows: beef cattle population in Temanggung Regency is as many as 35,342 heads, mostly (60%) Simental and Limousine breed. The extent of agro-climate (air temperature, humidity and rainfall) is suitable for cattle fattening and the culture of local farmers/farming communities are already very familiar with livestock, especially beef cattle.

In addition, the production of Livestock Forage Feed (HMT) is equivalent to 240,148 Animal Units (AU), while the livestock population (cows, buffaloes and sheep / goats) is equivalent to 81. AA1 AU, so it is possible to develop livestock as many as 158,707 AU (equivalent to 158,707 heads cow).

Other potentials are that additional feed such as rice bran, corn bran, cassava, cassava dregs, tofu dregs, coffee skin and others are also widely obtaineable and relatively cheap.

c. Prospects

The prospect of fattening beef cattle is quite good as the human population increases, therefore, the protein demand will also increase. In addition, declining imports of beef cattle from America, Australia, India and others, due to Antrax, mouth and nail disease, as well as mad cow, pushed local farm into a trend that many ogled.

Another encouraging prospect is the strengthening of environmental issues encouraging the use of fertilizers and organic treatments to increased crops (cattle is the main producer of organic fertilizers from animals). Furthermore, the trend of cattle prices from year to year has never decreased, tend to be 5 - 8% above the average inflation. Lastly, there is also the record of the release of ready-to- cut Cattle from Temanggung regency to outside the region’s demand (Jakarta, Bandung, Cirebon, Semarang, Yogyakarta and others) which amounted to as many as 150 – 175 cows/month, that should also be noted as an encouraging prospect. In short, the beef cattle fattening business is encouraged to utilize the former excavated mining land C belonging to the emanggung regency government. This effort is expected to supply not only the needs of local beef (Temanggung and Magelang) and regional (Semarang, Tegal and Wonosobo) but also in national level (Jakarta, Bandung, Cirebon) in the long run. In addition to fulfilling meat consumption, this business can absorb labor and creating more jobs as well as saving the environment by becoming a massive producer of both solid and liquid organic fertilizer.

d. Technical management

The calculation base in this business is the fattening system combined with trading, the number of cow/cage with the capacity of 500-550 cows and the time length of fattening which is 5-6 months or 5,5 months = 150 days. In addition, in-out system ± 150 cows/month, production ± 1.150 cows/year and the workforce of three people for administration and marketing, one person in charge for technical problem, and fifty people hired casually/seasonally for cattle handling. The assumption is the body weight (early) + 420 kg with the price of Rp. 25.000/kg with the selling price of cows Rp. 23.000/kg (buy and sell = Rp 2.000/kg). Furthermore, ADG (Average Daily weight Gain) averaged 0.8 kg/head/day and grass requirement + 10% of body weight (BB) and concentrate consumption + 1% of BB.

Other assumptions cattle dung collected + 8 kg/ekor/ hari and cow urine collected ± 5 liter/head/day.
