Indonesia History - Galuh Kingdom - 670-732

In 670 AD, Tarumanagara was split into two, Sunda Kingdom and Galuh Kingdom, separated by Citarum River. Kings who reigned Sunda Kingdom were the offspring of King Tarusbawa, King Linggawarman’s son-in-law. King Tarusbawa, who controlled Sunda Kingdom until 723 AD, founded a new capital for the kingdom in a hinterland near the upper course of Cipakancilan. In 732 AD, King Tarusbawa later was succeeded by the second king of Sunda Kingdom, King Harisdarma, his son-in-law. The latter conquered Galuh Kingdom and he was better known as King Sanjaya. As King Sanjaya was also the heir of Kalingga’s throne, he became the ruler of North Kalingga which was also known as Mataram Hindu, in Central Java, in 732 AD. He bequeathed the kingdom in West Java to his son, Rakai Panaraban. His other son, Rakai Panangkaran, inherited Mataram Hindu Kingdom.
