This is the first mission undertaken in the DREAMSEA program. This mission was carried out in Ogan Komering Ilir and Palembang, South Sumatra, Indonesia.
The manuscripts in Ogan Komering Ilir were obtained from four owners. From this location, we managed to digitize 50 manuscripts. From Palembang, 36 manuscripts were obtained from four collections of different owners. One of the collections from this location is a legacy from the Sultanate of Palembang Darussalam. The manuscripts were written in Jawi script on media paper and contain various studies in theology, history, Islamic jurisprudence, astronomy, and Arabic grammar. In addition, there are also manuscripts containing letters and other notes. Some manuscripts have rubrics, illustrations and illuminations.
