Pakuan Pajajaran (or Pakuan/Pakwan or Pajajaran) was a capital city of Sunda kingdom. In this city, king Prabu Susuktunggal (1382–1482) established a palace called "Sri Bimapunta Narayana Madura Suradipati". Pakuan Pajajaran was mentioned in several archeological findings, mainly in the form of inscription and old manuscript, among others: Batutulis inscription (16th century), Kabantenan inscripted metals, Carita Parahyangan (1580), Fragmén Carita Parahyangan and Carita Waruga Guru (18th century) manuscripts.

Pakuan Pajajaran was established for the first time by king Tarusbawa in 669 AD. Pakuan Pajajaran was destroyed by the Sultanate of Banten in 1579.
