Last update: 25/07/2019

KUALA LUMPUR, July 25 (Bernama) - The Raja Kita or Our King Exhibition held in conjunction with the installation of the 16th Yang di-Pertuan Agong will display various collections featuring Al-Sultan Abdullah Ri'ayatuddin Al-Mustafa Billah Shah and Raja Permaisuri Agong Tunku Hajah Azizah Aminah Maimunah Iskandariah that had never been shown to the public before.

National Museum Department director-general Datuk Kamarul Baharin A. Kasim said visitors would have a chance to take a closer look on the royal couple's personalities through a showcase of their hobbies and activities.

"This time we will showcase the collection from Istana Pahang and the Pahang Museum. This collection has never been shown to the public. Among them are the queen's wedding gifts from the Al-Sultan on their wedding day," he said during a live interview on RTM's morning show, Selamat Pagi Malaysia today.

The Yang di-Pertuan Agong is scheduled to officiate the exhibition held at The Royal Museum at Istana Negara Lama on Aug 5.

Kamarul Baharin said the exhibition, which is free for the public, was aimed at channeling information and knowledge on the role and contribution of Sultan Abdullah as a ruler.

"We use a more interactive approach by using the Augmented Reality Technique where visitors, especially the younger generation, can download and scan and store information of the exhibits.

"We also use holographic techniques and an interactive wall as new features of our museum," he said.

Royal Museum Director Fateema Sherzeella Mohd Yusoff, meanwhile, said visitors would also have the chance to see royal regalia as Cogan Alam, Cogan Agama, Cokmar and royal swords.

"This exhibition also brings royal instrument from the state itself like the "Pedang Bentara” and the royal umbrellas used by the Pahang state," she said in an interview on the Alfa 102 slot on National FM radio broadcast today.

The Raja Kita exhibition is open to visitors for three months from Aug 6 to Nov 5, from 9am to 5pm.
