The Keris Memorial

This monument in the shape of a keris, a sharp-bladed Malay knife, was erected in 1963 to commemorate the installation of the 33rd Sultan of Perak, Sultan Idris Shah.  It is situated on a hill near the government rest house in Kuala Kangsar.  

The importance of the keris in the lives of the early Malay community as well as those of royalty is evident even today, and can be seen as an important part of the attire and regalia of the present day Sultans, especially during presentations and ceremonies in the Royal Court.

A tribute to the struggle for self-rule
