Nāgarakrĕtāgama or Description of the Country (1365 AD)

Documentary heritage submitted for inclusion in the Memory of the World Register in 2012.

The Nāgarakrĕtāgama gives testimony to the reign of a king in the fourteenth century in Indonesia in which the modern ideas of social justice, freedom of religion, personal safety and welfare of the people were held in high regard. It also testifies to the democratic attitude and openness of authority before the people in an era that still adhered to the absolute rights of kingship.
