Kellie’s Castle (aka Kellie’s Folly) is a castle located in Batu Gajah, Kinta District, Perak, Malaysia. The unfinished, ruined mansion, was built by a Scottish planter named William Kellie Smith. According to differing accounts, it was either a gift for his wife or a home for his son. The castle is situated beside the Raya River (Sungai Raya).
The construction of this house was started in 1915 by William Kellie Smith but it came to a full halt upon his sudden death in 1926. The solitary castle, looks almost surreal in these wild plantations of Perak, projecting a strong personality and an aura of mystery.
Besides being haunted, the castle is believed to have hidden rooms and secret underground tunnels, one of which leads to the Hindu temple through the Kinta River. However, this tunnel has now been sealed for safety reason.
Kellie’s Castle is now a popular local tourist attraction, with some believing it to be haunted. The castle is situated on the way to Batu Gajah town at the Kinta Kellas Rubber Estate, about a 30-minute drive and 14 km south of Ipoh City.

The gamelan or Malay gamelan which exists today in Malaysia is basically from the courts of Riau-Lingga, Pahang and Terengganu. Although originated from the land of Java, Indonesia, the Malay gamelan has developed a distinct identity compared to the Javanese, Balinese and Sundanese gamelan from Indonesia.
Although the popularity of gamelan has declined since the introduction of pop music, gamelan is still commonly played on formal occasions and in many traditional Malaysian ceremonies, i.e Malay weddings, Royal functions, etc. For most Malaysian, gamelan is an integral part of Malaysian culture.
