Bandar Seri Begawan
October 3, 2017

Located in Kota Batu in the capital of Bandar Seri Begawan is the Mausoleum of Sultan Bolkiah, the fifth (5th) Sultan of the Brunei Kingdom from 1485 A.D. to 1524 A.D. The tomb showcases how the former Sultan reigned with his famous charismatic and leadership style.

The mausoleum was built by Sultan Abdul Kahar and was aimed at commemorating the Sultan’s importance in Brunei Darussalam. Three noteworthy achievements credited to the former Sultan were the expansion of the Brunei Kingdom territory without war, his success in developing and spreading Islam in the entire Brunei Darussalam as well as in the Philippines, and his explorations abroad to learn other civilizations and their useful methods in order to apply these in Brunei.
