Negara Brunei Darusallam
The Country Of Brunei ,Adobe Of peace
According to legend, Brunei was founded by AwangAlakBetatar. He moved from Garang, a place in the Temburong District to the Brunei river estuary, discovering Brunei. According to legend, upon landing he exclaimed, Baru nah! (loosely translated as "that's it!" or "there"), from which the name "Brunei" was derived. It was renamed Barunai in the 14th century, possibly influenced by the Sanskrit word "varuṇ" (वरुण), meaning either "ocean" or the mythological "regent of the ocean". The word "borneo" is of the same origin. In the country's full name, Negara Brunei Darussalam, darussalam (Arabic: دارالسلام‎) means "abode of peace", while negara means "country" in Malay. The official national history claims that Brunei can trace its beginnings to the 7th century, when it was a subject state named Po-li, in the Sumatra-centric Srivijaya empire. It later became a vassal state of the Java-centric Majapahit empire. Brunei became a sultanate in the 14th century, under a newly converted Islamic sultan—Muhammad Shah. At the peak of Bruneian Empire, Sultan Bolkiah (reigned 1485–1528) had control over the northern regions of Borneo, including modern-day Sarawak and Sabah, as well as the Sulu archipelago off the northeast tip of Borneo, Seludong (modern-day Manila), and the islands off the northwest tip of Borneo. The maritime state was visited by Spain's Magellan Expedition in 1521 and fought against Spain in 1578's Castille War.
