Sultanate of Samudra Pasai 1267 to 1521 AD

Jakarta (DreamLandLibrary) - The Pasai Sultanate, also known as the Samudera Darussalam, or Samudera Pasai, is an Islamic kingdom located on the northern coast of Sumatra, more or less around Lhokseumawe City and North Aceh, Aceh Province, Indonesia.

There is not so much archeological evidence about this kingdom to be used as material for historical studies. However, some historians began to trace the existence of this kingdom sourced from the Story of the Kings of Pasai, and this is associated with several royal tombs and the discovery of coins made of gold and silver with the name of the king listed.

This kingdom was founded by Marah Silu, who was titled Sultan Malik as-Saleh, around 1267. The existence of this kingdom was also listed in the book Rihlah ila l-Masyriq (Wandering to the East) by Abu Abdullah ibn Batuthah (1304–1368), a Moroccan traveler who stopped in this country in 1345. The Pasai Sultanate finally collapsed after the Ihsan invasion of Portugal in 1521.
