Kandang XII at Keraton Village

The Kandang XII is a mausoleum complex measuring 25x30 m, located in the Keraton Village, Banda Aceh. This is the burial place of Sultan Iskandar Thani (reigned 1636-1641) a Sultan who reigned towards the end of Aceh's 'Golden Age'. Remains of a gold ornamented coffin were excavated here some years ago.

 

Within the complex are 12 mausoleums, among them the royal mausoleums of the Sultans of Aceh, that is, Sultan Ali Mughayatsyah, Sultan Alaiddin Riayatsyah Al-Qahar and Sultan Salahuddin Riayatsyah. The mausoleums are decorated with carved gravestones and outstanding calligraphy. Sultan Al-Qahar's gravestone is made from beautifully engraved copper.
