Ask anyone in Malaysia of the late Tan Sri P. Ramlee, and chances are you'll get references of his famous films ' Bujang Lapok', 'Madu Tiga' or even the funny 'Keluarga 69'. The late P. Ramlee was an extraordinary artiste; he was an actor, singer, composer and director.
The great actor passed away on 29 May 1973. Today, his house comes under the care of the Malaysian government, and is considered a proud national heritage.
The house has been turned into a memorial, dedicated to the preservation of his memory and of his late wife, the talented actress, Saloma.There are collections of personal memorabilia of the late actor; awards, photos, personal artefacts and a rare glimpse into the past of a man who rose from humble beginnings and easily made friends with anyone.
