“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.””
“Walaupun dulu ia merupakan kawasan perlombongan yang utama di negara ini, namun apa yang tinggal kini hanyalah sebuah kawasan lapang bersama kesan-kesan kegemilangan silamnya. “

“Home to several species of fowls and birds, the Tampin Recreational Park also houses longtailed monkeys, porcupines, swans, peacocks and ducks.”
It is refreshing to find green and shady trees in the middle of Tampin town. Home to several species of fowls and birds, the Tampin Recreational Park also houses longtailed monkeys, porcupines, swans, peacocks and ducks. Your arrival will be greeted by loud screeches of the simians coming from the overhead branches.
Schoolchildren love to frequent this park that allows them to approach the animals at close range. Witness their fascination at the responses of the monkeys when teased. Their cries and acrobatic antics will make the children hysterical with laughter.
The landscape of this recreational park is fashioned in such a way that the park is situated in a valley bordered by sloping hills. A suspension bridgespans goes across this bridge. Lower down, getting its water supply from the main lake, is a fish pond. If you happen to enter from the Tampin Museum side, you will find a basketball court on your right, and a children’s playground on your left.
Moving on further will lead you to a mini aquarium with various species of freshwater fish. From here, a climb down the slope will lead to the main lake, where you will be rewarded with the sight and smell of hot food and local delicacies offered at the food stalls. Just the ideal spot to quench your thirst while experiencing the freshness and tranquility of the park before taking a stroll along this scenic Tampin Recreational Park. You will not be disappointed.
