3. Bukit Melawati
The relics of the past, the Altingsburgh Lighthouse, a large rock slab named Batu Hampar, and the Poisoned Well are the highlights of the hillfort Bukit Melawati or Melawati Hill. The hillfort was the administrative centre of the Selangor Sultanate in the late 18th and early 19th centuries.
Bukit Melawati was constructed by the local Malays during the 16th century. The Dutch captured the fort during the early 18th century. Later on, in the late 18th century, Sultan Ibrahim recaptured the fort with the help of his two brothers, Penggawa Tua and Bendahara Adb. However, the fort was destroyed during the Klang War (also known as the Selangor Civil War).
For those who are interested in the history of Bukit Melawati, there are several remnants, a few leftover cannons and foundation stones at the location. The main highlights attract several curious tourists every year. Moreover, Kuala Selangor Historical Museum is a few steps away from Melawati Hill. The museum displays ancient weapons, collections of relics, artefacts, specimens of old currencies, dioramas, etc.
If you aren’t much interested in historical stuff, let me tell you that Melawati Hill is home to the local long-tailed macaques and silvered leaf monkeys. The silvered leaf monkeys at Melawati Hill are accustomed to human presence but feeding the monkeys is highly discouraged. Another mentionable thing here is that the top of the hill offers an excellent panoramic view of the Straits Of Malacca and a beautiful sunset.

5. Perigi Beracun
Perigi Beracun or the Poisoned Well is a mentionable reason why people visit Bukit Melawati. There’s an interesting history behind this well. People say that the water of the well had been contaminated by a watery solution mixed with irritants, such as latex and bamboo shoots, that causes itchiness.
It was made such to punish the traitors of the sultan. They were dropped into the well and the contaminated water would rise to the height of their chin and cause them great distress. Now, it has been covered with iron grates for health and safety. So, the curious visitors may have a close-range view of the well.

15. Mangrove Boardwalk
There’s a beautiful boardwalk in Kuala Selangor Nature Park. However, it’s not in a good condition right now. It is actually made of concrete. But as it remains covered in dead leaves most of the time, it becomes quite slippery underfoot.
Also, the wooden railings are broken in places so you must be very careful if you are taking children along. However, a walk over the boardwalk among the green mangrove trees can be very fascinating.
16. Sri Shakti Devasthanam Temple
Sri Shakti Devasthanam Temple is a Hindu Temple that was constructed based on Hindu architectural scriptures. It is located around 9.5 km from Kuala Selangor town centre and is sited on an elevated land of around 1 acre. The temple is considered to be a shining beacon of Hindu architectural excellence.
During the late 19th or early 20th century, Indian immigrants who came to Malaysia built a small wooden shrine in Bukit Rotan. That’s how Sri Shakti Devasthanam Temple came into being. Formerly, the temple was known as Sri Maha Mariamman Temple.
The temple was reconstructed in 2001 in adherence to the ancient Aghamas and Hindu scriptures. Before the reconstruction, all preliminary poojas were carried out. Sri Shakti Devasthanam Temple is probably the first and the only temple in Malaysia that was constructed after holding all the preliminary rituals.
10 million bricks, 100 tonnes of granite, 20,000 tonnes of steel bars, 25 tonnes of teakwood, 1,500 cubic metres of concrete, and 1.2 million person-hours were needed to construct the temple. It is encircled by a massive decorative wall, and the magnificent entrance is a multi-tiered shrine soaring 74 feet high. The entrance was sculptured with granite frames weighing up to 4 tonnes. It was carved by skilled craftsmen of Mahabalipuram in Tamilnadu, India.
Annually, around 10 important Hindu festivals and auspicious dates are celebrated in the temple. Monthly, festivals like Sanggadahara Chathurthi, Pournami, Amavasai and Pratyangara Homa are observed in Sri Shakti Devasthanam Temple.

23. Qi Jian Xian Shi Fo Zu Gu Miao
Qi Jian Xian Shi Fo Zu Gu Miao, dedicated to Lord Buddha, is a famous tourist attraction in Kuala Selangor with unique architecture. It is a two-level temple and its upper level is an artificial cave.
The ground floor of the temple consists of the main prayer hall. Both the floors are connected by a prayer of grand staircases. The upper level of the temple was designed to imitate a mountainous scene.
The main deity of Qi Jian Xian Shi Fo Zu Gu Miao is Di Zang Wang Pu Sa. He is one of the four principal bodhisattvas in East Asian Mahayana Buddhism. Bodhisattvas are people who made resolutions to become a Buddha and also received a confirmation or prediction from a living Buddha that they will become a Buddha.
If we translate the name of Di Zang Wang Pu Sa, it will mean Earth Treasury, Earth Store, Earth Matrix, or Earth Womb. He is popular for his vow to take responsibility for the instruction of all beings in the six worlds between the death of Gautama Buddha and the rise of Maitreya. He also took a vow not to achieve Buddhahood until all hells are emptied.
That’s why he is often regarded as the bodhisattva of hell-beings, guardian of children and patron deity of deceased children and aborted fetuses in Japanese culture.

24. Redang Beach
Redang Beach is a popular tourist attraction in Sekinchan near Kuala Selangor. It is also a famous shooting area of different local and international dramas. Some of the scenes for Outbound Love, a famous Hong Kong drama was shot here.
The beach is famous for its wishing tree, shorebirds, waterfowl, and numerous seafood vendors. The sad thing is that you can’t do swimming, diving, or snorkelling on this beach.
Sekinchan Wishing Tree, a huge tree with thousands of red ribbons dangling from its branches is a must-see attraction in Redang beach. Although I don’t believe in such stuff, but if you do, you can make a wish by tying a red ribbon with coins around the branch of the tree.
The local seafood restaurants in the area serve the best seafood. You can watch the sunset from the beach or play with soap bubbles and fly a kite. However, don’t mistake the Redang beach for Pulau Redang. Pulau Redang is a beautiful island off the east coast of Peninsular Malaysia.
Swimming, diving, or snorkelling are allowed in Pulau Redang and there are around thousands of differences between Redang beach and Pulau Redang. Honestly, Redang beach is not even near to Pulau Redang in terms of beauty. But it still is worth a visit, especially for budget travellers.

Sri Anggala Parameswary Peachiamman Temple is another famous temple in Kuala Selangor. The temple is around 100 years old, and a lot of tourists come to visit it from faraway locations. They come to Sri Anggala Parameswary Peachiamman to worship Amma, the main deity of the temple. They believe that it is a very powerful temple, and all their wishes might come true after praying here.
According to the local people, Amma’s statue on the ground was formed by nature and it’s not man made. Back in those days, it was a very small temple. The local people who used to pray there about 40 years ago say that the temple used to be dark and scary. There were also no proper roads then.
But now as the temple has gained much public attention, many changes have been made to the temple. Even the road to the temple is now drive-worthy.

Kota Tanjung Keramat is a fort that was built by Sultan Muhammad in the year 1830. A major portion of the fort was built from soil despite that it was a very strong defence fort. It is square in shape with two entrances. The main entrance of the fort has a width of 7 metres and is facing the north direction.
The lane from the entrance is curved towards the east side leading to a staircase. The staircase goes down to Pangkalan Bagan Pasir. The other entrance is facing the east side and it was considered an emergency entrance for the army in the fort to get out to bring news from Kota Melawati. When the Dutch captured Kuala Selangor, this fort was renamed Fort Utrecht. They renamed it after their ship.
It’s a great place to learn more about the history of Kuala Selangor. That’s why lots of tourists come to this historical landmark.

28. Virgin’s Grave
Virgin’s Grave, also known as Makam Keramat Anak Dara or Keramat Rubiah, is located at the small village named Kampong Tanjung Keramat. The village is small and situated at the last point of land at the mouth of the river Selangor.
The grave is on a small rocky hill. The sides of the hill have steepened by quarrying. You can climb up to the keramat by the rickety wooden steps. Virgin’s Grave is a white tiled rectangle protected inside a walled structure. There’s a signboard outside the grave to let visitors know the history behind it.
I don’t know why they call it a grave because it’s actually not a grave but a shrine. It is the shrine of an 18-year-old girl, Siti Aishah who ran away from her home to avoid a forced marriage. She was never found but her clothes were found hanging on a tree. So, her parents decided to build a shrine in her honour. It’s local folklore that is written on the signboard, and I think it’s quite interesting and counts as a reason to visit the place.
Behind the Virgin’s Grave, there is a beautiful lake. It was formed due to the excavations of the Japanese during the War. Probably that’s why it was named Lake Shima (Shima means island in Japanese).
