Kampong Raja Pagoh Travel Guide: 0 reviews and 4 photos

According to history of Malaysia and history written by Portuguese Jaoa de Barros 1553, year 1377 Parameswara seek refuge at Pagoh, Ulu Muar, he built a wooden outpost here, he was then attacked by Majapahit of Java. He later founded Melaka. In 1511 the Portuguese captured Melaka, Sultan Mahmud Syah and his family fled to Pagoh, again the Portuguese attacked Pagoh and Sultan escaped. Traditionally the entire terrain was inhabited by large numbers of lizards and peoples of Parameswara killed them and so it became smelly, Sejarah Melayu claimed Parameswara came to a destination where he named it Biawak Busuk (Dead smelly lizards), somewhere unclear but was believed at today's Pagoh. Picture is a dead lizard I snapped on the road of Pagoh, exceptionally popular, this dead lizard is killed by modern technology of four wheels that they usually hit & roll a lizard or a cat or a dog into a piece of flat meat.
