Terengganu rich in Islamic tourism sites

KUALA TERENGGANU: Tracing the historical remnants of Islamic scholars, including those around the Islamic Civilisation Park (TTI) and the Terengganu River, has potential to further strengthen the Islamic tourism industry, said Terengganu state executive councillor Ariffin Deraman.

Among the attractions are the house and surau left by ulama and fighter Abdul Rahman Limbong who opposed the British in the 1920s in Kampung Beladau Kolam here.“We need to discuss with the Terengganu state museum about the house and surau left by Haji Abdul Rahman Limbong,” he said during a visit to trace Muslim scholars around the Terengganu and Nerus rivers here yesterday.

At present, villagers are carrying out religious activities at the surau of Abdul Rahman Limbong every week. This can be highlighted to tourists cruising on the Terengganu river, he added.

Another attraction is the tomb of a famous scholar from Terengganu, Sheikh Abdul Malek or better known as Tokku Pulau Manis, located in Pulau Manis here.

Tourists can also enjoy community-based tourism at Pengkalan Banggol Cempedak and Kalang Warisan, added the state tourism, culture and information technology committee chairman.

Ariffin said a committee will be set up to coordinate tourism packages along the rivers. — Bernama
