About the kingdom

Watugaluh Village consists of 4 Hamlet, Watugaluh Krajan Hamlet, Gendong, Nanggalan and Jasem. It is named Watugaluh Krajan because formerly this village was a kingdom and residents often find objects such as gold relics and other ancient goods.
According to the literature, Watugaluh Village was formed when the capital of Mataram Kuna moved from Tamwlang to Watugaluh (Diwek sub-district). This is proved by in the Prasasti (inscription) Anjukladang from 937 which says: we prasidha manraksang ranghyangta Medang I Bumi Mataram I Watugaluh. This incident allegedly occurred on 10 April 937. Therefore, every April 10 is celebrated anniversary Watugaluh.
