Beting Beras Basah, Hilir Perak

This area which is near the Perak river mouth has a long history, for it is here the first Sultan of Perak, Sultan Muzaffar Shah's boat was stranded.

Legend has it that only after casting away his crown into the Perak River that his boat was freed from the sand bank.

To this date, on the coronation of each new Sultan of Perak, a visit by the Sultan to this area is a must.

Despite being relatively small and undeveloped, Beting Beras Basah is both historically and culturally important in the lives of the Perak people.

Following tradition, it is here at the river mouth where the coronation ceremonies for the installation of all Perak sultans enter their final stage, whereby the new ruler dips his foot into the river in a symbolic ritual to ratify the coronation.
