AdministrationEdit

Kianggeh is a mukim, the second-level administrative division of Brunei, whereby it is one of the mukims or subdistricts of Brunei-Muara District.[2] The head for the community of Kianggeh is a penghulu; the acting incumbent is Naim bin Kamis, who is also the penghulu of Kota Batu.[1][3]

The area of Kianggeh is officially subdivided into nine villages, which are the third- and lowest-level subdivisions of Brunei. They include: City Centre, Berangan, Kianggeh, Kumbang Pasang, Parit, Pusar Ulak, Tasek Lama, Tumasek and Tungkadeh.[2] All of these villages are also among the neighbourhoods of Bandar Seri Begawan; they have been incorporated by the capital's Municipal Department and thus subjected to the municipal jurisdiction in addition to being administrative divisions.

Notes: During the reign of Sultan Haji Omar Ali Saifuddin III, Kumbang Pasang was considered a mukim. But in the reign of Sultan Haji Hassanal Bolkiah, Kumbang Pasang ceased to be a mukim and become absorbed within Mukim Kianggeh and is now a part of its areas till the present day.
