To Indonesians, it is known as "city of heroes" due to the importance of the Battle of Surabaya in galvanizing Indonesian and international support for Indonesian independence during the Indonesian National Revolution. Surabaya was once the largest city in Dutch East Indies and virtually the center of trading in the nation, exceeding those of Batavia, competing with the likes of Singapore and Hong Kong. Surabaya (Suroboyo) is locally believed to derive its name from the words "suro" (shark) and "boyo" (crocodile), two creatures which, in a local myth, fought each other in order to gain the title of "the strongest and most powerful animal" in the area. It was said that the two powerful animals agreed for a truce and set boundaries; that the shark's domain is in the sea while the crocodile's domain is in the land. However one day the shark swims into the river estuary to hunt, this angered the crocodile that went territorial. Shark argued that the river is a water-realm which means it is shark territory, while the crocodile argued that the river flows deep inland, so it belongs to crocodile. The fight resumes ferociously as the two animals biting each other. Finally the shark was badly bitten and fled to the open sea, so the crocodile finally rules the estuarine area that today is the city By: wikipedia
