Photo of Sacred Rock ( Batu Bersurat )

The rock is a memorial to a Dutch dignitary’s child who mysteriously vanished during the Dutch occupation. Rumours of a tiger attack were spread by some, while others claimed angry Malays took the child in hopes of ridding Pangkor of the Dutch. A faint, crude carving of a tiger with a child in its mouth, as well as the symbol of the Dutch East India Company, is etched on the side of the rock.
