Encyclopedia Article for Terengganu

traditional region of northeastern West Malaysia (Malaya), bounded by those of Kelantan (north and northwest) and Pahang (south and southwest). It has a 200-mile- (320-kilometre-) long coastline along the South China Sea (east). Terengganu is mentioned in 1365 as a vassal of the Javanese kingdom of Majapahit. The sultanate of Terengganu, ruled by members of the same family since 1701, was under Thai suzerainty until a treaty in 1909 made it a British protectorate and one of the unfederated Malay states. After World War II it joined the Federation of Malaya (1948)
