About the kingdom

Google translation

Bohorok had previously been called Tanjung Melayu, the meeting point of two rivers.
Bohorok was involved in trade along the Wampu river, buying salt at Pangkalan Brandan from Melayu Kampar. Tengku Tan Deraman, son of Tengku Djukdin, son of Tengku Panji Sakar, son of Tengku Syahmardan, son of Sutan Husin, was the first to promote the processing of land for agriculture.
The Kingdom of Bohorok, Stabat and Binjai eventually were united to form the kingdom of Langkat., which became Langkat Regency under Dutch rule, and later under Indonesian rule.
