West Kalimantan, Sultan of Sambas

West Kalimantan, Sultan of Sambas

Present Sultan (2014): HRH Pangeran Ratu Muhammad Tarhan Winata Kesuma

HRH Pangeran Ratu Muhammad Tarhan Winata Kesuma was born in 1993 as 19th king of Sambas in West-Kalimantan.
His father the very symphatic Pangeran ratu Winata Kesuma, who died Sultan-of-Sambas1-2-2008, was since 2000 king of Sambas. This rather quiet and humble king said, that it is nice to have royal clothes on, but he rather preferred to serve his people in a different way and that glamour is nice later.
Unfortunately the king had problems with his heart and died after a relative long sickbed. After 2 days his oldest son was selected to be the new king and it is quite good to see, that the civil government of Sambas also let the young king act as a symbol of tradition and identity in Sambas. We hope, that the our king will have the same characteristics as his father.
