The Palace

Google translation

The majestic Bosar Tunggang Palace is the main symbol of the Sultanate of Dhasa Nawalu, standing majestic Maulan Village Promise Muara Tais, South Tapanuli.
The construction of a privately-funded palace by the king’s offspring is to revive the noble values of Dalihan Natolu traditional culture of Batak Angkola tribe. Also, the development of adat is also juxtaposed with religion. Now the palace of Tunggang Bosar Janji Mauli has a modern boarding school supported by the Bagang Godang Foundation and has become a patron for religious education for the people of Sumatra and especially the West Coast of North Sumatra.
