Papua is the second largest island in the world. Around the year 200 AD, a geographer named Ptolamy called it LABADIOS. At the end of 500 AD, the Chinese author Ghau Yu Kua gave the name TUNGKI, and at the end of 600 AD, the Srivijaya Kingdom mentioned the name Papua using the name JANGGI.

Tidore gave the name for this island and its inhabitants as PAPA-UA which has changed in the name to PAPUA. In 1545, Inigo Ortiz de Retes gave the name NUEVA GUINEE and there was another sailor who gave the name ISLA DEL ORO which means Gold Island. Robin Osborne in his book, Indonesias Secret War: The Guerilla Struggle in Irian Jaya (1985), dubbed Indonesia's easternmost province as HEAVEN HEAVENLY.

It is unknown whether in ancient BC civilization there was a kingdom in Papua. It could be that ancient times there were advanced civilizations in Papua. At a conference on street lights and traffic in 1963 in Pretoria (South Africa), C.S. Downey said about an isolated settlement in the middle of the dense forest of the Wilhelmina Mountains (Peg. Trikora) in Western New Guinea (Papua) which has an advanced lighting system.

The traders who painstakingly managed to penetrate into this settlement told of his horror at the very bright lighting of the "several months" that were on the poles there. The bulbs seemed to glow strangely after the sun began to set and kept burning all night every day. We do not know the truth of this story but if it is true it is extraordinary and must be investigated.

Papua has been known for its natural wealth long ago. In the 18th century AD, the rulers of the Srivijaya empire, sent offerings to the Chinese empire. In the offering there are several birds of Paradise, which are believed to be Birds of the Garden of Heaven which are native animals from Papua.

The land of Papua is very rich. Copper and gold are abundant natural resources found in Papua. Papua is famous for the largest gold production in the world and a variety of mines and natural resources are so abundant.

Papua is also touted as a Little Heaven Falls to Earth. Papua is the Paradise of Biodiversity Remaining on Earth Today. In 2006, a survey team consisting of American, Indonesian and Australian explorers conducted a survey in some of the mountainous regions of Foja, Papua Province of Indonesia.

There they found a magical place they called "The Lost World", and "Paradise Garden on Earth", by watching dozens of species of birds, butterflies, frogs and plants that have never been recorded in history. If managed properly, Papuans can prosper more with the abundant natural wealth.
