The kingdom of Sintong was located on Sumatera, province of Riau, in the Rokan area.
History of the kingdom
Riau was a country rich in history in the past. Not only rich in natural resources but also rich in history. Malay kingdom or nation ever experienced a heyday in advance.
In Riau Province there were a number of Malay kingdoms, that once existed, such as the kingdoms of Indragiri (1658 – 1838), Siak (1723 – 1858), Pelalawan (1530 – 1879), and Riau-Lingga (1824-1913).
There are many other small kingdoms, such as Rokan, Tambusai, Rambah kingdom, the Kingdom of Sintong, Koto Rajo Rajo , Kingdom of Kuntu and many more.
Now it’s all just a story and history for posterity, just slightly left of the former Royal Palace.
The damage went on since the days of the Dutch government. On this situs were found excavated valuable objects such as treasure gold, diamonds, silver, and precious gem stones. This situation was made worse, when the people of Sintong needed bricks to build a mosque, theu used bricks from the old temple.
