History is very important in our daily life. History is treated as a guide in order for us not to make the same mistake in the coming future. Same goes for Pekan Kuala Linggi, which is well known for its history. Kota Kuala Linggi is located atop Bukit Supai (Sepoy’s Hill). This fort is also well known by the name of For Filiphina, to commemorate the name of the Dutch Governer’s daughter at that time. This fort was built in the year 1756-1757 by the Dutch and Bugis soldiers as a peace treaty between the two parties. As a result of the treaty, the Dutch was given the power over Linggi and monopolised the tin trading.
