Lost city in Johor discovered

"Lost city believed found in Johor." By Teoh Teik Hoong & Andrey Edwards, The Star Online, 3rd February 2005 [pdf and graphic]

"Museum hopes Johor will assist in lost city quest." By Teoh Teik Hoong & Andrey Edwards, The Star Online, 3rd February 2005 [pdf]

"Manuscript leads to lost city." The Star Online, 3rd February 2005 [pdf]

"It was an old Malay manuscript once owned by Sir Stamford Raffles, the founder of Singapore, in a London library that led Raimy Che-Ross to the existence of the lost city in Johor.

According to Raimy, the presence of a lost city in the jungles at the southern end of the Malay peninsula had been indicated in Malayan forklore for over four centuries.

His findings on the lost city has been published in the latest issue of Journal of the Malaysian Branch of the Royal Asiatic Society 2004.

In his paper, he said the place was raided by the Indian-Chola conqueror Raja Rajendra Cholavarman I, of the South Indian Chola Dynasty in 1025A.D.

The ruins could be as old as Borobodur, and could pre-date Angkor Wat, Raimy said, adding that aerial photographs taken over the site and tales from the orang asli had indicated the existence of structures."
