Souvenir books from the installation of the Sultan of Perak

Souvenir books from the installation of Sultan Idris Shah in 1963 (left), and from the installation of Sultan Azlan Shah in 1984. (Personal collection of Raja Shahriman)

The souvenir books (or buku chenderamata) make enlightening reading for those interested in the history and adat istiadat of the Perak royal house. The book contains:
1. a brief description on how a Perak sultan is chosen
2. the istiadat pertabalan and a description of the various ceremonies
3. information on the Perak regalia
4. the history of the Perak sultanate
5. a list of dignities awarded by the Perak sultan

The official website of The DYMM Sultan Perak’s Office contains a similar appraisal of the subjects described in these books.
