BRIEF INTRODUCTION


The Indonesian Hakka Museum is divided into three parts – the Chinese Museum of Indonesia, the Hakka Museum of Indonesia, and the Yongding Hakka Museum of Indonesia.

Since the history of Hakka in Indonesia is an integral part of the Indonesian Chinese history, it is only natural to present first the history of Indonesian Chinese, followed by the history of Indonesian Hakka.

Meanwhile, the Yongding Hakka makes up a large number of the Hakka population in Indonesia, among whom, many were pharmacists. Their ancestors lived in ‘Tulou’, their unique dwellings, in the mountainous lands of Yongding Fujian. This museum is modelled after one of the indigenous Tulou known as the ‘Zheng Cheng Lou’.
