Restoring the legacy of Tunku Abdul Rahman

Tunku Abdul Rahman Putra Al-Haj was a great supporter of the arts. He met with actors and even directed his own films.

Plans are afoot by The National Archives of Malaysia to turn the Tunku Abdul Rahman Putra Memorial in Jalan Dato’ Onn into a must-visit destination this year.

In conjunction with what would have been the first prime minister’s 112th birthday on Sunday (he was born on Feb 8, 1903), StarMetro visited the memorial to get a glimpse into Tunku Abdul Rahman Putra Al-Haj’s life and the future of the memorial.

The National Archives of Malaysia director-general Azemi Abdul Aziz said officers would be trained at the memorial to provide better services to visitors.

“We thought of having our officers explain Tunku’s part in the nation’s history to the visitors,” he said in an interview with StarMetro recently.

Noting that the memorial’s vast array of artifacts may be difficult to be viewed in one visit, he said they also planned to have a list of the most interesting attractions of the memorial and highlight stories of Tunku.
