Visit the ruins of the Dutch Fort at Kampung Teluk Gedung in Pangkor, built in 1680 by the first Europeans in Perak.  

This 300-year-old fort was once a Dutch stronghold against pirates and local Malays until a ferocious attack by the latter forced them out of Pangkor.

In 1743, the fort was rebuilt and made a garrison for 60 Dutch Soldiers.

It was built to protect vital tin supplies and occupied by the Dutch till 1748.  The fort has been a volatile history with constant attacks by locals and pirates which finally forced its occupants to leave.
