Google translation

The historical roots of the Huristak kingdom are far from the first century AD, where the Batak empire has been derived from the Pa’ta word based in Batahan, around the city of Natal now. At that time the religion of the Batak people was Parmalim, and the religious leaders of malim acted as government advisors in effect. At that time the king of Batak was named King Jolma with King Malim’s advisor.
The old batak empirewas located in South Tapanuli and established trade relations with other kingdoms such as Ming kingdom in China and the Cola kingdom in India.

In 1024, there was a battle between the old batak kingdom and the Kingdom of Cola, this was due to the offense of King Rajendra Cola Dewa 1 over the trade relations of the Old Batak Kingdom and the Ming empire. This battle lasted for 5 years, and in 1029 the kingdom of Cola succeeded in controlling the area, the old batak kingdom collapsed, the king of Batak was arrested, but not killed. In 1030 part of of old Batak kingdom came back in Barus; King Malim (religious leader Malim in the old mountain), crowned his son-in-law as King Mula in Batak Barus kingdom.
