Batu Kurau, Perak




Batu Kurau (GPS: 4.97466, 100.79475) is a small town in the district of Larut Matang, Perak. It is located to the north of Taiping. Perhaps the only call to fame for Batu Kurau is that it is the birthplace of the late Kamaruddin Mat Isa, the fifth Menteri Besar of Perak, who served from 1970 to 1974.

Visiting Batu Kurau

Exit the North South Expressway at the Taiping North Interchange (Exit 148). Then head east towards Kamunting on Route A2.

After you passed Masjid Kamunting, you will arrive at the intersection with Route A7. Turn left and head north on Route A7. At Kampung Ulu Sepetang, at Sekolah Kebangsaan Ulu Sepetang, there is a junction through which A7 continues. Do not turn left but continue on the same road, which is now called Route A5. After another 20 minutes, the road crosses a river (Sungai Ara). Thereafter is a junction to State Route 113. Take this road and follow it all the way to Batu Kurau.
