In 1831, a Dutch cartographer named Vosmaer was tasked with mapping the area of Kendari. While performing this task, he is said to have met with the indigenous tribe, the Tolakis, and to have built their king a palace in the harbor of Kendari. The palace was completed on 9 May 1832, and now 9 May is celebrated as the date of Kendaris founding. Over time, the city became an important center of Sulawesi in Dutch Colonial Indonesia, first becoming the capital of the Kewedanan District and later the Laiwoi Onder Afdeling District.
