A short visit to a castle

Heard about Kellie's Castle? It's situated near Baru Gajah, Perak. It's about 20 mins drive from Ipoh.


the view from the front. This unfinished castle was built by a Scottish planter, William Kellie Smith since 1915


we paid it a visit last Sunday..

the view from top of the castle... the entrance ticket is RM4 per person


all of us in front of the castle


it was like posing in some historical place at Rome, LOL



with hubby


we climbed to the top of the castle. There's actually nothing much to see in this castle, only those walls and some architecture. A friend said, a nicer way to name it, is Kellie's Castle, in another word, it's actually 'ghost house' =_=


last but not least, a group photo of us!


We then headed to Tanjung Tualang for some nice seafood. Stay tune for the photos!
