Palembang, at the time of the Srivijayan Empire, it was also known for its original name patterned after the civilization it represents Srivijayan. Modern-day Palembang, however, is the capital city of South Sumatra and is the second-largest city in the island, next to Sedan. References described Palembang as one of the most archaic cities in the Malay Archipelago and possibly across South-East Asia as well. Once called the Venice of the East by the Dutch, Palembang is the capital of South Sumatra and one of the oldest cities in Southeast Asia. It is also known as Kota Pempek (Pempek City) for its delicacy, pempek (fishcake with sago pearls). Palembangs existence can be traced as far back as the 7th-century.
