Bukit Merah

Garfish were terrorizing the village, killing anyone who went near the shore. A boy came up with the idea of using banana tree trunks to form a protective wall. It worked, and everyone celebrated! But the Raja’s pride was hurt. Overcome with jealousy, the Raja ordered his men to kill the boy while he slept. The boy’s blood flowed down and covered the hill, leading to its name Bukit Merah, or Redhill.
