Kellie’s Castle: Within The Vicinity

 stars
Within the vicinity of the Kellie’s Castle is Gua Tempurung or Tempurung Cave, the biggest limestone cave in Peninsular Malaysia. There is also the infamous Tambun Pomelo, a grapefruit from the citrus family. To try out this fruit, head for the Sam Poh Tong cave along Jalan Gopeng and choose one of the many roadside stalls selling this fruit. You can look for a best bargain for the fruits but most of the time, the prices are all the same in all the stalls. [more ]

Kellies Castle

 stars
Drop by Kellie's Castle and spend two to three hours here if you are visiting Ipoh or on your way to Cameron Highlands. This uncompleted huge mansion is located in the town of Batu Gajah and is about 25 minutes’ drive away from Ipoh, the capital city of Perak. This mansion has a Moorish architecture with rooms designed for Kellie's son and daughter. The owner, William Kellie Smith was a wealthy Scottish planter who made his fortune in Malaya by helping to construct public roads in South Perak. A living hall, a place of worship, a flat rooftop to cater for parties and an elevator half completed. It was also discovered that there are secrets tunnels, one of which leads to the Hindu temple through the Kinta River. However, this tunnel has now been sealed for safety reason. The ruin of the mansion can be seen by the road to Batu Gajah. This is where the best photo of the whole building should be taken. There is also a tree that grows to resemble "a bear hugging a tree" at the compound of the castle. [more ]
