Personae Inderapura

Personae Inderapura reflects the diversity of people or characters who have lived in the state of Pahang for centuries. The state of Pahang Darul Makmur, formerly known as Inderapura is the largest state in Peninsular Malaysia with an area of 39,900sqkm. This state, bordered by six other states (Kelantan, Terengganu, Selangor, Negeri Sembilan, Perak, Johor) has 11 districts, 76 townships and is inhabited by about 1.6 million people from various racial and cultural backgrounds as well as religions and beliefs. Pahang is famous for its natural resources and its beautiful flora and fauna. Sungai Pahang and its tributaries are the lifeblood of its community. Apart from being a source of sustenance, the river is also an important communication route for the community. This situation has seen the establishment of settlements along the Sungai Pahang starting from the headwaters at the confluence of Sungai Tembeling and Sungai Jelai to the lower part of Kuala Pahang downstream. The existence of these communities along the Sungai Pahang led to the emergence and development of a very unique culture. These communities and their creative interaction with nature gave birth to various knowledge such as methods of catching aquatic life, river-based cooking recipes and various other daily life survival skills. The geographical position of Pahang which is bordered by six other states has also added the richness of culture and arts and various other inimitable characteristics to Pahang. Not only that, for its people, naturally, a more open attitude and culture of thinking was formed.
