Religious manuscripts have been found in many different areas in Indonesia including Qur’anic manuscript. However, among others, Qur’anic and Tafsir manuscripts are the least to be discovered. Several researchers have reported that only a few Qur’anic manuscripts discovered. Among this limited discovery is Candi Cangkuang Qur’anic and tafsir manuscript founded in Garut, West Java. This research attempts to examine Candi Cangkuang Qur’anic and tafsir manuscript. Particular attention is given to investigate its origin, contents and structures of the manuscript.
