Muzium Negara or Malaysian National Museum Gallery B - Perak Royal Throne

The Royal Throne of Perak (Replica)

This Royal Throne has been used during the installation of

  1. His Royal Highness Sultan Iskandar Shah, the 30th Sultan of Perak, in 1918
  2. His Royal Highness Sultan Abdul Aziz Al-Mustasim Billah Shah in 1938
  3. His Royal Highness Sultan Yussuff Izzudin Shah in 1948
  4. His Royal Highness Sultan Idris Iskandar Al-Mutawakkil Allalahi Shah II in 1963 in Istana Iskandariah, Kuala Kangsar, Perak


Singgahsana or Dais

The royal throne standing on its dais (a platform raised above the surrounding level to give prominence to the person on it) was one of the symbols of power used by Malay monarchs.

Its high aesthetic value signified the high rank of a Ruler, who was considered sacred.

Here he was installed, and this was his seat of honour during all official meetings and traditional ceremonies in the palace. It gave the Ruler the power and the right to govern.

Seated on the throne as head of government he has the final say in all matters of government during discussions with his officials in the hall of assembly. All decisions taken became commands which had to be followed by all his subjects.
