PASIR SALAK : General Info & Tourist Attraction

 
 

HISTORICAL

PASIR SALAK

Its the place where Malaysia?s modern history started.

 

Like other rural areas in Malaysia, the calm and serenity shrouding the atmosphere around Pasir Salak belies its tumultuous past where the revolt against British rule took place. Situated 70 km from lpoh city, the Pasir Salak Historical Complex is a memorial that tells of the history of Pasir Salak and the people of Perak. It also pays tribute to warriors such as Datuk Sagor and Datuk Maharajalela. This is indeed the place where Malaysia?s modern history began and the scene where the country started to gain grounds for independence and its birth into a democratic nation.

 

To honour the sacrifice of the people who stood against foreign rule as well as to mark the significance of this place, a complex was built in 1987. At the complex, you will see Birch?s grave, the burial site of Sipuntum, the Datuk Maharajalela?s fortress, cannons used against the British army, beautiful of traditional Malay Rumah Kutai the olden days, and a souvenir shop. The complex consists of different buildings in traditional Malay style, and is sited next to the Perak River, surrounded by typical Malays villages. It is built to resemble Malay kampung houses and there are several of these structures, featuring different items of historical importance.

 

Being located by the banks of the Perak River, it is also a venue for river-related activities.

This is the first building you see when entering the complex and is located in the heart of the place. It offers a bird eyes view over the surrounding flat land.

 
 

THE WARRIOR MONUMENT

 

Erected in 1990, this monument is a symbol of bravery, and pride of the Malay warriors who took on the British forces in the 1875 rebellion. It was officially opened on 26 May 1990 and its sculpture is shaped like a Sundang which is a traditional sword widely used by the Malays against the British. The Sundang originates from Indonesia and the weapon is similar to the Kens.

J.W.W BIRCH MONUMENT

 

This is the site where Birch was killed at about 12midnight when he disembarked from his boat named Naga Birch on a mission to enforce British administration in Perak. Lela. Dato Sagor and 50 of his warriors proceeded to meet Birch and told him no to enforce British rule in Perak. A heated argument ensued and Birch was later killed by Pandak Endut when he was about to meet Maharaja.
