Pasir Salak Historical Complex

Pasir Salak Historical Complex

Situated 70 kilometres from Ipoh city, the Pasir Salak Historical Complex is exactly what its name implies, a memorial to the remarkable history of Pasir Salak and the people of Perak. Pasir Salak is of special importance in the historical development of Malaysia as an independent and sovereign nation in that it was here that the original flames of Malay nationalism can be said to have begun. The assassination of the then British Resident of Perak, J.W.W. Birch, sparked off a war between the British colonial administration and the Malays. Although the better-equipped British army prevailed, there was no stopping of the sentiment of freedom and sovereignty that had been aroused among the Malays, leading eventually to the declaration of independence, from colonial rule.

The Historical Complex pays tribute to warriors such as Datuk Sagor and Datuk Maharajalela, with special memorials erected in their honour, in the shape of a sundang, a replica of the type of knife used in the killing of the British Resident.

Other interesting sights at the complex include Mr. Birch’s grave, the burial site of Sipuntum, the man who actually carried out the said assassinations, the sight of Datuk Maharajalela’s fortress, the lela rentaka cannons used against the British colonialist army, 2 beautiful examples of traditional Malay Rumah Kutai of the olden days, an interesting souvenir shop as well as an information counter.

The Pasir Salak Historical Complex is actually located by the banks of the Perak River, and is often a venue for river-related activities, apart from being noted for its historical displays. The Complex is open everyday (including public holiday) except Friday from 9.00 am to 4.30 pm.

Admission for an adult is RM5.00 and a child (6-12 years old) is RM.3.00.
