Kota LukutSeptember 26, 2011
“Firstly, there are two glaring mistakes in the article on Kuala Lukut.
1) Raja Busu and his family were obviously NOT killed in 1934 – it was in September 1834. And it was not a clash with local Chinese secret society members. His home was attacked and burned by about 300-400 ordinary Chinese miners who were angry that he had raised the tin levy to 10 per cent.
2) Raja Jumaat did NOT build this fort a little after his arrival in Lukut. Raja Jumaat actually arrived in Lukut in 1836, but it was only in 1846 when he was officially appointed as the Sultan’s representative there, and the fort was built soon after that.
Finally, you might like to note that there is a Museum Complex near the fort with many exhibits and displays about the area. Of all the museums I have visited in Malaysia, the staff here were absolutely the most friendly, the most helpful and the most knowledgeable museum staff I have met. Well done to them!”

“”Walaupun ia kini tinggal hanyalah sebuah kawasan lapang bersama kesan-kesan kegemilangan silamnya sahaja, pada pendapat saya, itu tidak mengapa. Kita hanya mahu menunjuk dan mempamirkan tempat2 dan kazanah2 serta bahan2 serta tempat2 bersejarah, kapada generasi2 baru, supaya mereka tahu “The History Of Malaya.””
