Who is Mat Kilau? Check this out http://ms.wikipedia.org/wiki/mat_kilau. 
Mat Kilau the malay warrior who fight the British in the 60′s . The so called “Kubu Mat Kilau” or fort of Mat Kilau was found in the Pasir Raja area. The govt tried to promote the place for tourist purposes but no history was written there for people to know what’s all about. 00 has been there many times and almost fully recce the whole place. We find it interesting to share with club members since we are around the area. There’s more to explore if we have the time. The track entering to Mat Kilau was in good condition, only the 3 km towards the fort was really overgrown and a washout where the cement culvert have broken. We did not give up and oo decided to built a log bridge so that others also could go visit the fort. Late last year- the culvert is still in position only the soil was washed away until now nothing have been done. So dunno what they want to promote expecting people to go all the way and turn back. Even the Chengai Tree was at one time a big promotion and now nobody cares.
