Slightly less than half a millennium ago, this small village strategically guarding the upper reaches of the Johor River was the seat of the Johor Sultanate. Though all that remains are a restored earth mount and fragments of stone walls, a fort built in 1540 by Sultan Alauddin Shah; son of the first Johor Sultan; used to exist. The Portuguese who had taken Malacca attacked in 1587 and completely destroyed the fort despite it being defended by 8,000 of the Sultanate's warriors.
