HARI RAYA @ SULTAN PALACE

Every 3rd Day of the festive Hari Raya or Eid, scouts from all over the country visit the Royal Family at the Sultans' Palace. Scout members rise early and queue for hours just to get places in one of the largest palaces in the world. This is a chance to see and shake the hands of their beloved king. The Sultan is also the Royal Patron of Brunei Scouts Association. 

It was also a time where we meet other scout members we have not seen for a long time. Hari Raya is about visiting and meeting fellow Muslims and for us its other scouts. It was magical to meet long time friends and meet new ones and have great food in the Sultans' Palace. Our troop wishes and scouts and Muslims around the world, Eid Mubarak!.
