Deep in Istana Negara (National Palace) lies some of the nations most precious royal jewels. The full regalia is worn by the Monarch of Malaysia; Yang Di Pertuan Agong (the king) during specific royal ceremonies: the installation and coronation of the King, the King’s birthday, awards presentation ceremonies and the convening of Parliament. Malaysia's rich heritage is reflected in the exquisite craftsmanship of each item.
