The Tomb of Sultanah Al-Malikah Al-Mu’azhzhamah

English | Indonesia

Tomb of Sultanah Al-Malikah Al-Mu’azhzhamah (‘Great Empressed Queen’) Nahrasyiyah bint Zainal ‘Abidin bin Ahmad bin Muhammad bin Al-Malik Ash-Shalih, the title of Ra Bakshy Khadiyu (‘ Ruler with Generous Hearts’), is the most beautiful tomb in Southeast Asia.

A little far about this tomb, is about the encryption contained in his tomb (see photo above). An information board that I got at the Samudra Pasai Islamic Museum.

It is said that Nahrasiyah served as Sultanah for more than 20 years, Period II of the Kingdom of Samudra Pasai Islamic, and died in 1428 AD

The story of Sultanah Nahrasiyah is very little, maybe it was in the Story of the Kings of Pasai that Raffles had copied, and is now stored in the Royal Asiatic Society, London. Even if Sir Richard O. Winsted’s opinion is correct, in his book A history Malay Literature, which states that the possibility of the Story of the Kings of Pasai was written between 1350 – 1500 AD.
