The story of the ultimate

’s loyalty and determination to the Sultan is unquestionable.


Perigi Hang Tuah

is located in the town of his birthplace, Kampung Duyung. According to folklore, the great man himself had dug the well for his own personal use. After he had passed away, it is said that the well has become the dwelling of his spirit, which took on the form of a white crocodile.

Another mystical aspect to the
