Mausoleums and cemeteries are not my preferred vacation destinations but I don’t deny that there are people who purposely look out for these, perhaps as a research topic.
The royal mausoleum of Almarhum Sultan Abdul Samad on Jugra Hill is visited regularly by common folk. Maybe these are local people who continue to feel an affinity with the late ruler.
Sultan Abdul Samad Ibni Almarhum Tengku Abdullah was born in 1804 and passed away in February 1898. He was the fourth Sultan of Selangor and ruled for 41 years from 1857 to 1898.
This royal mausoleum is located atop Jugra Hill, encompassing approximately five acres of land. This spot was chosen as the royal burial ground for the Selangor royal family since 1886. Now known as the Royal Mausoleum Complex, it is open to the public from 8am to 5pm daily.
Besides this being Sultan Abdul Samad’s final resting place, outside the main complex are mausoleums belonging to his eldest son, Almarhum Raja Muda Musa who passed away in 1884, and other family members.
