Known as the city that tin built, Ipoh the capital of Perak is a picturesque city of the past and present. Grand buildings once occupied by the city’s founders are a reminder of Ipoh’s early days. The name “Ipoh” comes from the “Epau” tree, a colossal jungle tree that used to be very common in the area. From pioneering tin mining town in the 1870s, Ipoh grew to become the commercial hub of the Kinta Valley and a crossroad for road, rail and river transport. A predominantly Chinese town, Ipoh’s heritage bears testimony to the early Chinese miners, Malay aristocrats, European engineers and planters, Ceylonese printers, Indian railway builders, Sikh and Pathan police and soldiers who all played a role in the development of Ipoh.
