Today the New Straits Times in its news article 700-year-old Gua Musang temple to become tourist site reported (extracts):
The oldest Chinese temple in the country, located in Kampung Pulai here, will be promoted as a new tourist destination through the Cuti-Cuti Malaysia campaign.
Tourism Minister Datuk Seri Dr Ng Yen Yen said it was high time for the 700-year-old temple to be promoted to the world and thus lure more tourists to the place.
But … but … but … didn't Parameswara (or Iskandar Shah) only come to Malacca around 1400 CE to form the first Malay sultanate of Malacca, just a mere 600 years ago?
I wonder whether Ng Yen Yen has been hinting that the Chinese were the earlier ‘bumiputeras’, by at least 100 years before Parameswara and his descendants and followers set foot here in Malaya?
