The Batak king at that time was named King Jolma his advisor was Malim.

The old Batak kingdom located in South Tapanuli had established trade relations with other kingdoms such as the Ming kingdom in China and the Cola kingdom in India.

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