Other Sights in Pasir Gudang

The township of Pasir Gudang was originally a village called Kampung Pasir Udang. Other villages that used to be located here included Kampung Sungai Perembi, Kampung Ulu, Kampung Hilir and Kampung Tengah. All these villages are now erased and redeveloped as industrial land. The name Pasir Gudang came about because the area used to be a sand mine.

Early Chinese settlers arrived here in the mid 19th century to develop the land for agriculture. They were given Surat Sungai, or river deed, by the Temenggong and cultivated pepper, catechu and gambier. Falling prices of these commodities compelled a switch to rubber in the early 20th century. As early as 1916, Pasir Gudang was already the centre for police and customs in the area.
