Sitting just up the street from Bandar Seri Begawan’s main intersection sits the Royal Regalia Building, a building which in its splendor lies a vast collection of discarded relics and monuments to the current Sultan of Brunei, His Majesty Paduka Seri Baginda Sultan Haji Hassanal Bolkiah Mu‘izzaddin Waddaulah, Sultan dan Yang Di-Pertuan Negara Brunei Darussalam.
In true cult of personality style, the building – truthfully, more of a museum – houses exhibits to illustrate the important up bringing, education, marriage, travels, coronation and subsequent rule of the current Bruneian head of state.
As one of Bandar Seri Segawan’s main attractions, the museum usually pulls in most visitors to the city. With scarce else to do in an astonishingly quiet capital city, if one is in Brunei, a stop at the Royal Regalia Building is necessary to comprehend the absolute monarchy that rules in the tiny sultanate
