A Disused Mining Pool

Batu Gajah when literally translated would mean "Elephant Stone". This little town, south of the state of Perak capital Ipoh, is famous for its tin mining activities.

Kellie's Castle

One of the landmarks of Batu Gajah is Kellie's Castle. The castle is actually an unfinished, ruined mansion, built by a Scots planter by the name William Kellie Smith. According to differing accounts, he had an ambitious plan to build a building with a tower tall enough to be able to see Ipoh Town some 30 km away.
