3 MUST do things – From Hulu Selangor to Kuala Selangor

Why 3 things?
Takkan lah 3 things jeeeerrrr?
Well, I have been to Hulu Selangor and Kuala Selangor many a times but these 3 things are fairly new to me hence I think I should share the new stuff that you can add to your current/existing list lah kan.
We were told that Kuala Kubu Bharu (KKB) was used be called Ampang Pecah back in 1925. It was a mining town was originally located between two Selangor rivers. It was also the fort for Raja Mahadi and Syed Mashor when they fought against Tengku Kudin's during the Selangor Civil War from 1867 to 1874. The kubu or fortress was constructed before the British colonial powers took over the town.
The township Ampang Pecah was washed away in 1883 flood and approximately 1500 people were involved and 35 people died. Sir Cecil Ranking, the District Officer at the time was also killed. Local superstition said that the flood/his death might be due to him shooting a white crocodile that was regarded as the river guardian. Only a Buddhist temple and a mosque survived the flood though. From then onward, the town is known as Ampang Pecah (translated in Malay language as Broken Dam). Kuala Kubu Bharu (KKB) was built right after on a higher ground where plenty of gardens located all over town. KKB has been gazetted as a garden city.
