Tribute to Father of Chinese education


Teachers and entrepreneurs who pressed for Chinese and vernacular education in Malaysia alongside Lim Lian Geok.

LOCATED along the busy Jalan Maharajalela in Kuala Lumpur is the LLG Cultural Development Centre, a humble heritage centre that tells the long story of vernacular education development in Malaysia.

Inside, a statue of Lim Lian Geok stands tall. A close observation will reveal that the statue is facing Stadium Merdeka; with some interpreting this to mean that conversations between him and the country’s first Prime Minister Tunku Abdul Rahman have not ended.
