Lorong Damai

According to stories told by the old folks in this district, Raub was opened for the first time in the 18th century. The story goes that two young men, together with their father were travelling through the jungle alongside a stream. After travelling for a while, they arrived at a spot where the water was obstructed by a dam.

Latar Belakang Raub

As soon as they arrived, the father told his sons that it was a perfect spot to rest. The sand by the stream was very clean. The young men agreed with their father’s decision. They then started to clear the area. They cleaned up the surroundings and built a hut. Every day the three men went into the jungle to look for cane, resin, rubber, jelutung (Dyera costulata) wood and etc.
