The royal regalia and pemajangan was set up at Istana Nurul Iman yesterday for the royal wedding celebration for the daughter of His Majesty Sultan Haji Hassanal Bolkiah Mu’izzaddin Waddaulah ibni Al-Marhum Sultan Haji Omar ‘Ali Saifuddien Sa’adul Khairi Waddien, Sultan and Yang Di-Pertuan of Brunei Darussalam, Her Royal Highness Princess ‘Azemah Ni’matul Bolkiah and Yang Amat Mulia Pengiran Muda Bahar ibni His Royal Highness Prince Haji Jefri Bolkiah.
The installation of pemajangan is only during the adat istiadat celebration including royal processions, royal coronation and royal wedding ceremonies.
The pemajangan is an embellishment of a white colonnade that fronts the entrance of Istana Nurul Iman with symbols of the monarchy.
The pemajangan is adorned with white fabric that covers the girders and rafters. Showpieces comprising rows of ceremonial flags and umbrellas of various shapes and sizes dot the beams in symmetry with the royal crest towering at the centre.
The colourful decor is among the oldest and the most valuable treasures in the Malay archipelago while the royal regalia showcases the beauty of Brunei Darussalam and its people inherited since the time of the first Sultan of Brunei, Sultan Muhammad Shah and the third Sultan of Brunei, Sultan Sharif Ali.
