The Keris Mandate Ceremony is a sacred ceremonial decree (istiadat) that symbolises the handing over of the official seal of power to enforce a certain injunction, ordinance or statute. The official seal of power is embodied symbolically in a Kris named ‘Keris Penyalang’ also called ‘Keris Kuasa or Keris Hukum’. Thus, the ceremony is named The ‘Keris Mandate Ceremony’ (Istiadat Keris Mandat).
The ceremony will embody sacred rites from the Palace Royal Ceremonies of the Agong or Sultan.
