Royal Regalia 


The Royal Regalia



Deep in Istana Negara (National Palace) lies some of the nations most precious jewels. The full regalia is worn by the Yang di Pertuan Agong during specific ceremonies: the installation of the Yang Di Pertuan Agong, the King’s birthday, awards presentation ceremonies and the convening of Parliament. Malaysia's rich heritage is reflected in the exquisite craftsmanship of each item.


Some of the Regalia used during the installation ceremony


Tengkolok Diraja (Royal Head Dress)

The cloth of the Tengkolok Diraja, worn by the King, is stitched with gold threads to form intricate patterns called “Dendam Tak Sudah”, which has its origins in Nigeri Sembilan. On the front of the headgear is a crescent and a 14-pointed star in white gold.

Gendik DiRaja (Royal Tiara)

The royal tiara worn by the Queen is made from white gold studded with diamonds. Like the Tengkolok DiRaja, the crescent and star are prominently displayed in front. The tiara was specially designed to be separated to form a locket and a brooch.

Keris Panjang DiRaja

It symbolizes greatness and power. Coated in gold, its cross-piece is stamped with the emblem of the Federal Government. The blade is tempered from the steel of 11 keris from each State. Only the King is allowed to carry it.

Kris Pendek DiRaja (Royal Short Keris)

Carved from ivory, the sheath is adorned with a golden tip and named “Hulu Pekaka”, while the head takes the form of the phoenix. Like the Keris Panjang DiRaja, only the King may carry this.
