History of the kingdom

Google translation

In ancient times Jeneponto was a great kingdom, an independent kingdom and had three kingdoms:  Arungkeke, Binamu, Tarowang and Bangkala.
The Kingdoms of Arungkeke, Tarowang, and Bangkala, were autonomous kingdoms like the Binamu kingdom at Butta Turatea. They did not supervise each other, but still interacted and shared each other, because of the similarities of language, culture, traditions, and customs to each other.

Before conquered by the Dutch Government in 1904, the territory of Donggala Regency was the territory of the Government of independent kings; among them the kingdom of Binamu.
