Kampung Gajah’s historical town of Pasir Salak was where the first British Resident of Perak, J.W.W. Birch, was assassinated by Dato Maharaja Lela and Si Puntum, which sparked off a war between the colonial rulers and the Malays, and subsequently led to the country’s independence in 1957.
The Pasir Salak Historical Complex was built to recapture the past bravery of the Malay warriors at that time, focusing on the country’s development since then. Besides the time tunnel, two Rumah Kutai (traditional houses in Perak) are used as galleries to display historical and cultural artefacts of old Perak.
