Hang Tuah Centre

I’ve talked about riding on the Menara Taming Sari with husband and son along with our Sahabat Media friends in the preview post, and you would noticed that I mentioned that the tower was named after the weapon of Melaccan’s legendary warrior Hang Tuah. Hang Tuah is an object of mystery. Much is to be learned about him and here is just where you can learn about Hang Tuah.

Known locally as Perkampungan Hang Tuah, this centre is fairly new and just opened to public.

Here in the centre you could learn about the people who lived in the Malay Sultanate era and how they go about in daily lives.
