Crown Binokasih Sanghyang Pake
The Crown of Binokasih Sanghyang Pake, or also commonly called the "Crown of Binokasih" only, is a crown that became a symbol of the greatness of the kingdoms in Sundanese land in the past. Before bequeathed / given to the Kingdom of Sumedang Larang and become a heritage of Sumedang, Mahokasih Crown was a symbol of the greatness of the Padjadjaran Kingdom. We flashback for a moment why the great crown of the Padjadjaran Kingdom can be in Sumedang and seems to be the legitimacy of making the Sumedang Larang Kingdom the successor to the Padjadjaran Kingdom.
Broadly speaking, some sources say that the Crown of Binokasih was made on the initiative of Sanghyang Bunisora Suradipati, namely a king from the Galuh Kingdom, the Galuh Kingdom itself was a large fraction of the kingdom of Tarumanagara.
Long story short, it was told when the Padjadjaran Kingdom was led by Sri Baduga Maharaja (or in various literatures we were more familiar with the name Prabu Siliwangi), the Padjadjaran Kingdom was attacked by a combination of Islamic forces from Cirebon, Banten and Demak, at that time the Kingdom of Padjadjaran was pressed and almost fell due to the the attack.
Before the Padjadjaran Kingdom actually collapsed, Prabu Siliwangi sent 4 people from Kandaga Lante to bring the Crown of Binokasih along with his equipment to Sumedang Larang in the hope that Sumedang Larang could continue the glory of the Padjadjaran Kingdom. Because at that time Sumedang Larang was a subordinate kingdom of the Padjadjaran Kingdom, so it might be said that the authority of the Padjadjaran Kingdom was passed down or passed on to Sumedang Larang, from superiors to subordinates.
The reason why Sumedang Larang was chosen as the successor was because at that time the Kingdom of Sumedang Larang had embraced Islam and was not attacked by the joint forces of Islam, besides Sumedang was also led by a young man who was known to be intelligent and authoritative named Prince Angkawijaya (or we are more familiar with the name of Prince / Prabu Geusan Ulun), who later became Prince Angkawijaya became a phenomenal king, because thanks to his leadership he was able to make the Kingdom of Sumedang Larang respected until it was known to all directions.
The four Kandaga Lante sent by Prabu Siliwangi were Grandfather Jaya Perkosa (Sanghyang Hawu), Eggplant Peot Grandparent, Famous Hapa Grandparent (Pancar Buana), and Grandparent Subscription. Narrated from the four Kandaga Lante people, Grandpa / Eyang Jaya Perkosa is the most powerful martial arts expert.
When the four Kandaga Lante envoys Prabu Siliwangi arrived in Sumedang, the four Kandaga Lante surrendered the Crown of Binokasih and conveyed the mandate or order from Prabu Siliwangi, so that Sumedang Larang continued the power of the Padjadjaran Kingdom which was cornered at the time. Then the four Kandaga Lante people also dedicated themselves to Sumedang Larang and played an important role in helping King Geusan Ulun achieve the glory of the Sumedang Larang Kingdom in the future.
On April 22, 1578, Prabu Geusan Ulun was named Prabu Sumedang Larang successor to the Kingdom of Padjadjaran, and the date was later celebrated as the anniversary of Sumedang Regency. Crown Binokasih with all the royal jewelery equipment brought from the Padjadjaran Kingdom is now neatly kept in the Prabu Geusan Ulun Museum, being one of the silent witnesses to the long history of Sumedang Regency, from the past, until now. Today coincides with April 22, 2013, which means that Sumedang Regency is commemorating its 435th anniversary, revered Sumedang, hopefully more advanced, motivated, and achievers.
