History of the kingdom of Wijayapura, 7th – 9th century

Since the 7th century there were Hindu kingdoms on Sambas region, which controled the Sambas River region and its surroundings. These kingdoms are also called “Old kingdom of Sambas”.
These kingdoms were:
* Kingdom of Wijaya Pura 7th – 9th century
* Kingdom of Nek Riuh, around 13th – 14th century
* Kingdom of Tan Unggal around the 15th century
* Kingdom of Panembahan Sambas, 15thcentury – 1671

After 1671 there was the Sultanate of Sambas (until today).

These four kingdoms were Hindu-Buddhist, but later there was the entry of Islam in West Kalimantan.
After the collapse of the kingdom of Panembahan Sambas in Kota Lama, a new kingdom was established, namely the Sambas sultanate with Raden Sulaiman being the first Sultan of Sambas with the title Sultan Muhammad Shafiuddin I in 1671.

The Wijayapura kingdom was a kingdom that was founded in the 7th century in West Kalimantan and was located around the Rejang River. The Wijayapura kingdom was actually a colony of the Bakulapura kingdom, then became a colony of the Tanjungpura kingdom, which was a subordinate kingdom of Majapahit on the island of Borneo. In Pupuh XIII and XIV from the book Negarakertagama it is stated that the Majapahit kingdom controlled almost the entire archipelago, including the kingdoms on the island of Borneo.
