Amangkurat

Amangkurat, also called Aiyana, was a prominent nagari city in ancient Langa at the Vahanavari River. Amangkurat emerged around the 16th century, when the nagari subjugated the local Kedayuh population. From circa 1900, Amangkurat rose to become the dominant military power in ancient Langa. Two hundred years later, it became the capital of the Layarang kingdom.

Amangkurat is now a city belonging to the Kaliyatra Empire. The city is surrounded by coastal hamlets of Gauhar, Naman, Sakari and Tanu. Near the Kachala Mountains in the west, there's also the ancient catacombs of Amangkurat, Amangcorinth, rumoured to the burial grounds of the Layarang Kings. The architectural style and town planning persited in Langa over seven centuries.
