Amazing trip i tell ya...

Many stories ive heard about Perak origin really... some say that the name itself came from the Bendahara at that time named Bendahara Tun Perak and another version saying that it came from the "glimmer of fish in the water" that sparkled like silver which is what "Perak" means in Malay. Therefore, the mere mention of the state's name will reflect the treasures hidden in its earth.

Historically Perak actually began with the installation of Sultan Muzaffar Shah 1, who was a descendent of Sultan Mahmud Shah of Malacca, in the year 1528. Although the Perak Sultanate had formed the territorial powers were still in effect. The administrative method was an extension of the democratic feudal system of Malacca.
