Kampung Kuta and Remnants of Galuh Kingdom
This is a documentation of our trip to Ciamis in West Java. There we stayed overnight at the traditional village of Kuta and visited the archaeological site of Ciung Wanara and Astanagede, two of which are the remaining of Galuh kingdom.

Galuh was an ancient Sundanese kingdom predating Pajajaran and the origin of Sanjaya, the prince who founded the Mataram hindu kingdom in Central Java and renowned for its Borobudur and Prambanan temples.

Ciung Wanara is said to be the palace of Galuh, whereas Astanagede is said to be the sacred/religious place where Galuh princes would retreat for religious reinvigoration.
