In the history of the sultanate of Indrapura, there are 4 periodes:

* Kerajaan Air Pura, 9th – 12th century,

The history of the kingdom of Indrapura dates from AD 800, beginning with three villages:
Teluk Air Pura
Muara Campo
Air Puding.

The first king was Sri Sultan Zattullah ibn Sri Sultan Zulkarnain.
The name of the Kingdom of Indrapura was given by Sri Sultan Zattullah kerana based on the royal heritage of mustika stones, contained in the temple (pockets in clear water). Located at the mouth of the river surrounded by Mount Kerinci, Mount Patah Sembilan and a row of Bukit Barisan.
The government at that time was based on “Mati dibangun, luko dipapek” which means “life debt is paid life, debt is treasured property and hand is shredded shoulder carrying”.
