History of Regency Bandung

Bandung Regency was born through Piagam Sultan Agung of Mataram, on the 9th of the month of Muharram in the year Alif or Saturday the 20th of April 1641 AD. The first regent was Tumenggung Wiraangunangun (1641-1681 AD). Based on historical evidence April 20 is seen as the Founding Day of Bandung. The regent then was replaced by Tumenggung Nyili, one of his sons. However Nyili did not long hold that position, because he followed the Sultan of Banten. The following regent was Tumenggung Ardikusumah, a Dalem Tenjolaya (Timbanganten) in 1681-1704.
