Kg Sanghur, Belum Lama, Royal Belum

Finally, we made it!!!!

Let me share the history of Kg Sanghur. This kampung was "opened" and inhabited by our Malays (Siamese blood) starting off with just few families and relatives. Planting and farming were the main activities for survival.

In 1974, due to "Bintang Tiga" threat, they were ordered to flee as this area was not safe, in fact, as it was gazetted as a "black area". As you drive towards Gerik, you will pass by some kampungs i.e. Kg Belum Baru, Kg Sauk etc, these kampungs are their new settlements.

In 1982, the government started to raise the water level at Belum Lama as part and parcel of the security strategy to block the movement of "Bintang Tiga", which eventually, by default, transforming this valley into a huge massive lake, now known as Tasik Banding.

Today, there is only one person left from the first generation of this clan (now third generations). It has been their common yearly practice to revisit their former kampung in Belum Lama on Hari Raya Aidiladha for tahlil.
