The Brief History of Port Dickson

Port Dickson was also known as Tanjung. Tin ore was abundant in Lukut during the 1820's. It attracted the Chinese immigrants. Port Dickson and Pulau Arang were founded by Sir John Frederick in 1889. It was a highly potential area to be a harbour, which later on developed into a busy trading centre. Railways were built for easier transportation.


Places of Interest around Port Dickson

Despite Port Dickson's reputation as an area firmly focused on beach resort activity, the sights and history of the surrounding area are well worth experiencing. At Kota Lukut, a mere 7 km from Port Dickson, stands the fort of Raja Jumaat, a renowned nineteenth-century Bugis warrior. The fort was built in 1847 to control the lucrative tin trade in the area. Another rewarding site is the lighthouse at Cape Rachardo, built by the Portuguese in the 16th century in order to guide ships to the safety of Malacca's harbour. The lighthouse is still functioning today, and visitors can ascend its narrow spiral stair to the beacon, which offers a magnificent view of the coastline of Sumatra. The Cape is also a popular stopover point for migratory birds. From September to March, flocks of sparrows, honey buzzards, and swifts can be seen here, together with birds of prey, such as hawks and eagles.

Twenty-three kilometers south of the lighthouse, on the road to Malacca, sits the small and mysterious village of Pengkalan Kempas. The village houses the enigmatic 15th-century tomb of Sheikh Ahmad Majnun, whose epitaph explains that he fell while fighting to save a now unknown woman referred to simply as "the princess." It is home to a more prominent mystery as well, however. Beside the tomb stand three megaliths, elaborately carved, of unknown origin and use. As if to seal the reputation of this hamlet of the unknown, there is also in Pengalen Kempas an "ordeal stone." This ancient lie-detector, through which a person would put his arm when answering questions, allegedly reacts to an untruth by closing upon the liar's fist. Whether or not this story is true makes for an interesting dare.

The Lukut Museum was built by the Department of Museums and Antiquities in collaboration with the Negeri Sembilan Darul Khusus government with the intention of spreading information and historical proof related to Lukut. It also functions to trace back the glorious days of Lukut.
