State initiates steps to preserve site on a more sustainable basis

The infrastructure around the cave is in a poor state.

THE state government will be temporarily engaging the services of the Ipoh City Council to clean up the area leading to the site of the cave drawings believed to be from between 3,000 and 5,000 B.C during the Neolithic period at Gua Tambun near Ipoh.

Perak Tourism, Arts and Cultural Committee Chairman Tan Kar Hing said, since a caretaker body has yet to be appointed to maintain the site, the city council will first clear the undergrowth covering the slippery steps leading to the area.
