About the kingdom

Until now the kingdom of Sri Bangun is still a mystery for the historians and residents.  For the historians the mystery of this kingdom may lie in the lack of historical evidence to know about this kingdom in the past. For the people of the city the mystery of this kingdom is a story of “the occult of the kingdom of Sri Bangun”. The people of the city of Bangun still believe in the existence of this kingdom until now, but its existence exists magically.

Estimated to be a subordinate of the Kingdom of Martadipura, but unlike the Hindu Martadipura, this Kingdom actually shows the style as a Buddhist kingdom with the discovery of some relics such as statues of Buddhist Nomad of Bronze, and Nandi Lembing Statue which by the local community called the Lion Noleh.
