Jawi:???? or Bandar Maharani is a historic Muar Municipality and the capitol of the Muar County, Johor, Malaysia. Sultan Ibrahim Sultan Iskandar declares it the king of Johor and it is the 4th busiest of Johor (after Johor Bahru, Batu Pahat and Kluang). This is the principal and major center of the larger Unity Territory or Muar area, subdivided into the Muar County and the new Ledang County, which was previously developed into a full-fledged Tangkak Subdistrict area.
The Muar County is the only county encompassing the entire area, formerly bordering Malacca in the north. Following the revaluation of the Ledang County, the Muar County now comprises only the area just southern of Sungai Muar, while the north area behind the Rio in the Ledang County. Yet both subdivided counties are still collective and lovingly described by their inhabitants and outside as the Muar area as a whole.
Currently, the new municipality of Muar is situated in the area of Bakri. The name Muar, also known as Bandar Maharani, is said to have had other previous reputations, and the name Muar itself is said to have its origin in its geographic position at the Muar River delta or delta as the following different versions of theories:
The name Teluk Dalam:Muar was formerly known as Teluk Dalam and means "deep bay" due to its position at the Muar River delta, which is widely open and low; predicated on a phrase in a part of Hikayat Malim Deman; as in : Moar Belum Berama Moore, Moore Berama Teluk Dalame.
The name Muara:Muar name is supposed to be the synopsis for this old Malaysian term Muara, which means "the open mouth". The term Muak means "bored" or "tired" when kayaking the boats on the rivers, which are big and winding for the locals in the first years. Humans began to name the stream and name the place Muar, which comes from the Muak name, after a long while.
There is also a mound not far from Muar at Parit Jawa in the southern Padang area of Mor and Bukit Mor, which may be the source of the name Muar. The Bandar Maharani:Modern Muar Town was officially opened and received the name Bandar Maharani Maharani by Maharaja Abu Bakar, which translates as the Empress's Municipality, the cousin of Maharani Fatimah, who also celebrated the great opening of the new Municipality on August 12, 1887 to symbolise and acknowledge the prominent position of Muar as the second most important and largest municipality of the State of Johor after Johor Bahru, the then capitol.
Legend has been circulating around the Muar area for some time, including Hikayat Malim Deman (Epic of Malim Deman), Legenda Awang' s Spear Return to Dayang Legend, and Legenda Puteri Gunung Ledang (Mount Ledang Princess' Legend). The Muar is steeped in tradition, as evidenced by many ancient notes and archeological works.
It is assumed that the story of Muar began much sooner than the Sultanate of Malacca. Muar's early past has been widely reported. 1361 it was alleged that Muar was part of the Majapahite Kingdom. In another report it is also said that Parameswara after his Temasik expulsion, before founding Melaka, had founded a colony near Kota Buruk, Pagoh, Ulu Muar, Muar and Muar, which experienced the beginning of the Malacca Sultanate kingdom.
Muar was also the historical place to which the settled legacy of the Malacca Sultanate fled in 1511 after the Goa River was invaded by the Portugese. Muar took part in the fight against the Portugese occupying Malacca during the 1511 intervention and assault by the Portugese on the Afonso de Alguquerque; the Kubu Bentayan Fortress was built by the last Sultan of Malacca, Sultan Mahmud, to ward off sea attacks before he was conquered and retreated to Pagoh, this case at the downfall of the Malacca Sultan's kingdom.
It was during the period of Portugese domination that the Portugueses constructed a fort called Fortaleza de Muar to protect the settlement against the Dutch and Aceh attacks, instead in the same Bentayan area. On the Muar River near Bentayan, the British colonials did almost the same thing to protect themselves against the advancement of the Japanese imperial army in the Battle of Muar in World War II.
Muhar is also home to the only grave of the seventh Malacca Sultanate, Sultan Alauddin Riayat Shah I (1477-1488). When the Bugis migration from Sulawesi Indonesia and their impact in the Johor Sultanate began, the five Bugis pioneering princes, Naval Brethren and Sulawesi Pontiffs from Sulawesi, Indonesia; Daeng Marewah, Daeng Parani, Daeng Celak, Daeng Manambun and Daeng Kemasi said they had come to Liang Batu, Lenga, Muar before they and their offspring became the powerful Temenggungs and later even emperors.
Muar, the Bandar Maharani, was incorporated by several Historians, Scientists and Writers and in many important historic material such as ancient cards, verses, epics, scripts and books: João de Barros ("Decades of Asia"), (1553):João de Barros, who in 1553 composed his second Décadas da Ásia ("Decades of Asia"), a story of the Portuguese in India and Asia.
Parameswara (Paramicura), expelled by Temasik after killing Temagi, the king of Siam, had exiled and ceased in Muar, building a Muar country named Pagoh. However, he and his descendants, together with his supporters, had sought refuge in Pagoh, Muar, and had opened two areas on the bank of the Muar River; the Biawak Busuk and another fortress named Kota Buruk, before moving to Melaka and opening Melaka.
1488 The event of Malakkos Sultan Alauddin Riayat Shah I. (1477-1488), who passed away and was interred in Pagoh, Ulu Muar, during a visiting event, named "Sultan Mangkat Di Muar". However, for fear of the vengeance of the King of Ayutthaya, he escaped to Pagoh, Muar with his 1,000 supporters and spent 6 years there when the Seletar people occupied Malacca before moving to Malacca and opening it later.

January Huyghen van Linschoten (1595) (Old Maps) :Map Linschoten A.D. 1595 shows Muar as a town near the state of Malacca. Raja Temenggung of Muar (also known as Temenggong Paduka Tuan of Muar) and his chiefs of villages agreed to a fusion of Muar with Johor after the inheritance quarrel between the two children of Sultan Ali.
Questioning the legality of the chiefs' desires, Tengku Alam Shah, who placed his inheritance claim on Muar, began initiating the Yementah Civil War in 1879 and beginning to recapture Muar, but was quickly conquered by the Maharaja Abu Bakar armed force, and Muar was eventually annexed and returned as part of Johor State on December 30, 1879.
In the 1880s, the Johor Temenggong Ibrahim Temenggong Ibrahim Johor ruler and his heir Sultan Abu Bakar Kangchu system was established by the independent sovereigns and Sultan Abu Bakar, and China's leadership was active in encouraging new Gambian and African peppers farms to be established, and China's immigrant farmers to become farmers and laborers to open and work these farms in Muar.

There' even a place named Bukit Gambir, which means hill of Gambier in Muar. Muar's wealth and fast growth made it the only city in Malaysia to have its own railroad system in the early years. Muar State Railway MSR, operating from 1889-1925, connects Jalan Sulaiman in Bandar Maharani and Sungai Pulai on a 22.5 km stretch.
In 1916, a 1916 project to lengthen the route to Batu Bahat was abandoned, and the route was completely abandoned in 1925 due to budgetary and geographic restrictions and its lesser importance following the building of Jalan Abdul Rahman, who connected Muar City with Parit Jawa. This is a memento and only part of the Muar story, as only the MSR vapour engine reliquary is exhibited in Tanjung Emas Park.

As a result of the slaughter, the Indian infantry brigade of 45, with severe losses for their two affiliated Australian 2/19th and 2/29th infantry battalions and the final case of Muar to the Royal Japanes Armed Forces was nearly destroyed.
Muar remained an important administrative city during the 1942-45 Malaya Dynasty Japan Empire occupied by the occupied Chinese armies, with many natives participating in most of the anti-Japanese opposition groups such as the Malayan People's Anti-Japanese Military (MPAJA) and Force 136. The Bukit Kepong policestation was raided and violently assaulted by members of the Malayan National Liberation Air Force (MNLA), the Communist Party of Malaysia's armed forces, on 23 February 1950 during the Malaysian emergency, in the Bukit Kepong incident, and 26 officers and members of their families were killed.

That is the major cause that Muar was once the city with the most bikes and the only city that required a current municipal licence to own and use a bike in the countryside. The Muar District was formerly subdivided into the community of Muar (Bandar Maharani) and the community of Ledang (Tangkak).
Following the upgrading of Tangkak Subdistrict to a full Ledang County, Bandar Maharani of Muar is now managed by the Muar Municipal Committee (formerly South Muar Town Council, later Muar Town Council) under the Muar Municipal Office, while Tangkak of Ledang is managed by the Tangkak Municipal Committee (formerly North Muar Town Council) under the Ledang Municipal Office.
