Everyone who comes to Pangkor has to visit the Batu Bersurat of Pulau Pangkor. The Batu Bersurat is a huge rock inscribed with mysterious graffiti dating back to the 1700s. On the rock is the etching of a ?tiger with a child in its mouth but no one knows who the artist was. Along with the etching of the tiger (which this writer thinks looks very cute) are what are believed to be Dutch alphabets.
There isn’t any explanation provided for the significance of this rock. However, there are a few versions of stories on this and all of them revolve around the story of the son of a Dutch official who was devoured by a tiger. On the other hand, according to Malaysia Traveller, the etching is most likely the Dutch coat-of-arms which portrays a lion on 2 hind legs with 1 arm holding a ?sword and another holding arrows (this writer believes this is more likely it).
Besides that, according to the locals, Batu Bersurat of Pulau Pangkor has a mystical belief that this rock used to be smaller than it is now. They believe that it is alive and can grow over the years. Do you believe it?
