Many people are unaware that there is a village in Malim Nawar named Kampung Tanjung Bangkong which contains a lot of historical treasures especially the coming and the settlement of the Japanese army to Tanah Melayu particularly in Perak.
The earliest Askar Melayu troop with body number 12, Lt Ibrahim bin Sidek, passed away with his companion Lt Ariffin bin Sulaiman with body number 8, and five other soldiers of Askar Melayu.
At that time, it was said that rumors spread throughout Perak saying that the Japanese troops killed many giant snakes in holes by using a grenade alone.
Not many Malaysians,even those who were born in Perak themselves, have ever known about several items which symbolise the sovereignty of Perak Sultanate. Perak Sultanate is actually a continuation of the great ruling by Malacca Sultanate which owns Tanah Melayu once upon a time.
