Pangkor Island : Kota Belanda / Dutch Fort Pangkor Island : Kota Belanda / Dutch Fort

Kota Belanda / Dutch Fort

At Teluk Gedung lies the 330 year old stone foundation of a Dutch Fort built in 1670. It was one of the Dutch strongholds against pirates and local Malays. Actually, during the Dutch occupation in the 17th century, tin supplies from Pangkor and the mainland were stored for protection in this fort. As time goes by, the locals were unhappy with the treatment of the Dutch. So, they managed to destroy the fort sometime in 1690. This is not the end because the Dutch then returned in full force to rebuild the fort.

After which, 60 soldiers were commissioned to protect the fort until 1743, when it was finally abandoned after a local warrior, Panglima Kulub, and his followers attacked it. Later in 1973, the National Museum undertook its reconstruction to restore as much as possible the remains of the fort for the benefit of tourists. Located at Teluk Gedung village, slightly south of Pulau Pangkor. Just ask the village folks for directions and they will be just too glad to oblige.

A short distance from the fort is Batu Bersurat (Sacred Rock). On this massive rock, drawings of a tiger mauling what is believed to be a child can be found. Local history has it that the boy was the son of a Dutch dignitary who disappeared and was believed to be attacked by a tiger.
