The problem in this study was to find out what values of Sriwjaya were carried on by Sang Nila Utama in Singapore? The method used was a historical research method. The results obtained were Palembang, the ancestral land of Sang Nila Utama because it originates from the Siguntang Hill. Sriwijaya land which became the religious center of its time. Sang Nila Utama's departure sought a new region when Sriwijaya was in a period of decline. The voyage stopped at a place called Temasek. This name was changed to Singapore. As a son of Sriwijaya of course still maintained the values that had been learned and implemented in his ancestral land. The values of Sriwijaya developed in Singapore were in determining a new location to start newe life. The choice of Singapore due to it had the same geographical characteristics, namely in the location of Bukit Larangan, which was the highest place that usually represents Mount Meru. This hill was equated with Siguntang Hill as the most sacred ancestral hill. Another value that continued to be maintained was to keep in good relations with the Sea People, and to rely on this group in various ways, starting as security and safety guards (the position of this group was formally entered into government as a member of the sea fleet, and treasurer), entering the Malacca Strait at the direction of the Sea People. Thus, it became Sriwijaya's prominent values to be used and developed in the new land, Singapore.
