The rich history and heritage of Perak makes a great state to marvel into. It has some of the most exciting and intriguing complexes built for decades that commemorate the sacrifices of the forefathers.
In memory of 2 significant leaders
For those who follow Perak’s history closely, here’s an attraction you would not want to miss – Pasir Salak Historical Complex. It was built to commemorate great warriors such as Dato Sagor and Dato Maharaja Lela who fought hard against British administration.
Several memorials built-in
Located somewhere not far from Kampung Gajah, the complex has a couple of memorials built in various shapes and sizes – one in the shape of broad sword as it was the weapon used to kill the then British Resident of Perak, J.W.W. Birch.
Check out artefacts and antiques
Other than the main attraction J.W.W. Birch Monument at the complex, visitors will also see artefacts and antiquities display in two traditional houses, Datuk Maharaja Lela’s fort and cannons used to fight against British army. If you are free this weekend, why not spend a day and drive to this historical site via North-South Expressway and exit at Simpang Pulai toll to get to Batu Gajah where there’s a signboard that’ll direct you to the complex.
