  5. 5. HISTORY <ul><li>According to the old folk, the  Bunga Pekan  flower grows wild at the banks of  Pahang River . The river at the Pekan town (near Mengkasar village) is also called Pekan River, however there is no source for the claim that Pekan got its name from this river. Other sources say the name &quot;Pekan&quot; came from the word &quot;Pekan Pahang&quot; (town of Pahang).[ citation needed ] For easier pronunciation, the locals simply called it &quot;Pekan&quot; and the name is still used. </li></ul><ul><li>Pekan town is said to have existed since the 17th century, but no exact date has been verified. Several  Arab  and  Chinese  writers mentioned Pekan. </li></ul><ul><li>The villagers at Kampong Mengkasar, about two kilometers from Pekan in the direction of Kuantan, are said to be direct descendants of Tok Tuan from Makassar in  Sulawesi ,  Indonesia . Among the well-known figures, Tun Abdul Razak was recognized as having a Sulawesi heritage. </li></ul>

It has produced eminent scholars all over the State of Pahang and Malaysia. Its students consistently further their studies in the esteemed  Al- Azhar University  in  Cairo ,  Egypt . </li></ul><ul><li>Pekan is 15 minutes from clean, sandy beaches. North on the way to Kuantan, there is Pantai Legenda (Lagenda Beach), which features a golf course). South on the way to Kuala Rompin is the Pantai Batu 16 (the 16th Mile Beach), which used to have a royal retreat complex. </li></ul><ul><li>A one-hour drive from Pekan is  Lake Chini , a beautiful freshwater lake which is one of the largest in Malaysia. It features a resort with restaurant, jungle trekking paths and a boat station. Boat trips are available by various routes around the lake.

  7. 7. EXQUISITE CUISINE <ul><li>Pekan offers a variety of delicious food. Being a Royal Town, Pekan enjoys the best kuih-muih (Malay delicacies) which are prepared by the same people or their descendants who used to prepare the same delicacies for the palace. Breakfast menu is aplenty to choose from. One particular novelty for breakfast is the 'roti naik' (a kind of bread similar to buns sold in supermarkets). This particular bread can only be found in very few places, Pekan being one of them. Other delicacies are nasi dagang, kuih bakar, ikan bakar (fresh grilled fish) and others. </li></ul><ul><li>Kampong Mengkasar is also well known of its Murtabak. It is a unique variant of the original Indian dish that can only be found in Pekan. The Murtabak Pekan  was not started in Kampong Mengkasar, but it is available here throughout the year.[ clarification needed ] Other murtabak outlets in Pekan , such as the Murtabak Mawar (also known as murtabak Sultan), are only available in the month of Ramadhan. </li></ul><ul><li>It is believed that the original  Murtabak Pekan  was started by an Indian Muslim Restaurant located at the second floor of the central market known as Restoran Salam in the early 1970s. It was one of the favorite dish of the late Sultan of Pahang (Sultan Abu Bakar) for breaking fast during the month of Ramadhan. Due to the great demands, more outlets starts selling murtabak all over Pekan. Murtabak has since referred as the special dish of Pekan, and one should not pass Pekan without trying and appreciate its delicious taste. </li></ul><ul><li>[edit]References </li></ul>
