FORTY-two students and seven teachers from Raja Isteri Pengiran Anak Damit Girls Arabic Religious Secondary School (SUAMPRIPAD) yesterday visited the Brunei History Centre and the Tomb of Raja Ayang in the capital.
The trip was organised by the school’s History Department to create awareness about Brunei’s historical past among the younger generation as well as to enhance students’ interest in learning history as a subject.
History officers, Mohammad Faisal bin Haji Mat Salleh and Hajah Siti Aisah binti Pungut, briefed the visitors on the centre’s main roles and functions.
The group then took their time to visit two of the centre’s permanent galleries, namely the Genealogy Exhibition Centre and the Borneo Manuscript Collection Gallery.
Their final stop was the Tomb of Raja Ayang, a member of the royal family at the time of Sultan Sulaiman’s reign.
According to history, Raja Ayang and her sibling had been punished for committing unlawful acts according to Islamic Law.
