Our mission is to ensure that the town of Pahang is recognized and developed to its full capacity. Through our partnership with KP synergies, we aim to spur both the job and economic growth by developing an Entertainment City which will benefit the people of Pahang as well as Malaysians across the country.”

District of Pekan and Pahang River –An Overview.
Located on the banks of the Pahang River50km south of Kuantan, Pekan is the royal town of the Malaysian state of Pahang Darul Makmur. Its name comes from a flower, the Bunga Pekan.
According to the old folk, the Bunga Pekan flower grows wild at the banks of Pahang River. Pekan town is said to have existed since the 17th century. Several Araband Chinesewriters mentioned Pekan.
Pahang River with 459 km in length is the longest river on the Malay Peninsula. The river begins at the confluenceof Jelaiand Tembelingrivers on the Titiwangsa Mountainsand drains into the South China Seathrough its river mouth named Kuala Pahang

From the mountainous upper reaches of Mount Tahan(2187 m) or locally called Gunung Tahan, it meanders in a south-easterly direction, passing Kuala Lipis, Temerloh, Chenor, Mengkarak and turning east at Lepar into the floodplain of Pekan, Kuala Pahangand drains in the South China Sea.
The banks of Pahang River was settled as early as 1400 by warriors and seafarers from around the Malay Archipelagosuch as Aceh, Riau, Palembangand Sulawesi, forming settlements.
In the old days, Pahang River and Muar Riverwere nearly connected at a place called Jempol, in Negeri Sembilan. This was because the Serting Riverflows into the Bera River, a tributary of the Pahang River.

Jempol Riverflows into Muar River. Trading boats from River Muar could continue their journey until they reach Kuala Pahang in Pekan, or Kuala Lipis to continue into Terengganu, Kelantan or Perak.
At Jalan Penarikan, the locals help will be required to pull the boats overland. The distance is about 300 meters and because of the pulling of boats overland, the route is named Penarikan, which is the Malay word for pulling.
Jalan Penarikan could have been discovered in the 14th century, way before the days of Malacca Empire. The Arabmerchants were actively trading as well as spreading Islam. When Malacca was discovered, they came to Malacca for trade and at the same time; the Pasaicame to Malacca too to acquire their daily sundries.


Coincidently, these are the same group of people whom they spread the religion to. The Arabs complained to the Pasai about the trials and tribulations of trading in Siambecause of the arduous journey through the Straits of Malacca, then on the Straits of Terbrau before they can continue the voyage through the South China Sea towards their destination in Siam.
This voyage which takes weeks is extremely lengthy and difficult. After listening to the grouses of the Arab merchants, the Pasai revealed that there was a short cut where they could avoid the arduous voyage

However, they have to pull their boats off shore for a kilometer or so. Learning of this, the Arabs endeavoured to try out this route.
One day, the Pasai show this route to the Arabs. First, they sailed from Malacca along the Muar River to reach Jempol River, where they have to pull the boats on shore for a short distance to get into the Serting River.
They then continue their journey along the Bera River to arrive at Kuala Tahan from which they proceeded to the South China Sea and finally to their destination in Siam.
The Arabs discovered that even though they have to go on land for a part of the journey, it was very much shorter. So from that day onwards, they decided to use this route and Jalan Penarikan became famous ever since.

Jalan Penarikan has also witnessed many significant events in history. The famous Malaccan warrior Hang Tuah, while on the run with Tun Teja, used Jalan Penarikan to flee to Pahang. The last Sultan of Malacca, Sultan Mahmud Shah, after the conquest of Malacca by the Portuguesehad als
