Bukit Melawati




Bukit Melawati is situated in the State of Selangor, Malaysia. The word ‘Bukit’ means ‘hill’. It was on this hill that stood a fort of the well-known leader, Raja Haji, who was a great warrior both on lands and the seas. Now, the hill has nothing else, but the remnant of an important piece of history for the State of Selangor and Malaysia as a whole.

This hill has also become the adopted sanctuary for refugee monkeys whose original home may have been swept away by development.
