The crown Binokasih Sanghyang Paké

The crown Binokasih Sanghyang Paké comes from the Kingdom of Sunda.
When the capital of the Sundanese kingdom in Pakuan Pajajaran was invaded by Banten troops (1579), this crown was successfully saved by the escapees of the Sundanese royal officials, namely: Sayang Hawu, Térong Péot, and Kondang Hapa. This crown was brought to Sumedanglarang and handed over to Prabu Geusan Ulun in the hope of replacing and continuing the existence and glory of the Sundanese kingdom. since then this crown has become the heirloom of the Sumedanglarang kings and later the Sumedang regents.
