History Kingdom of Kotawaringin (Kutaringin), 1615 – 1948

Kingdom of Kotawaringin (Kutaringin) was a Principality, branch of the Sultanate of Banjar, situated in what now is Kotawaringin West in Central Kalimantan. According to palace-records of al-Nursari it was established in 1615 or 1530. The Netherlands made their first contract with Kotawaringin in 1637; this year is considered the first time that Kotawaringin was ruled by a king, according to the Hikayat Banjar and Kotawaringin (Hikayat Banjar version I).
After the Proclamation of Independence of Indonesia, Kotawaringin became a part of the region NKRI, with the status of Autonomous / Kewedanan. Next it became a Kabupaten.

Palaces of the kingdom

1) Palace Istana Kuning (Lawang Agung Bukit Indra) in Pangkalan Bun.
The Istana Kuning (Yellow Palace) was the Royal Palace during the Kutaringin Sultanate. The location is in the middle of Pangkalanbun city and adjacent to the monument field. The Yellow Palace consists of four buildings, namely: Bangsal (where the royal guests are received), Rumbang (where the king meditates), Dalem Kuning (the center of government, and the king’s residence), and Pedahiran (royal dining room).
In 1986 the palace, which is famous for its yellow royal doors, was set on fire by a mad woman named Draya and left nothing behind. The replica of the palace was completed in 2000.

2) Palace Al Nursari
Astana was founded in 1867 AD by Sultan Pakueran Paku Sukma Negara (Sultan the 12th). The function of Astana Al-Nursari was not as the central palace of government and the residence of the king, but as the residence of the noble descendants of the Sultan Kotawaringin, who still settled in Kotawaringin Lama after the transfer of the royal center to Pangkalan Bun.
