Ask anyone in Malaysia of the late Tan Sri P. Ramlee, and chances are you’ll get references of his famous films ‘ Bujang Lapok’, ‘Madu Tiga’ or even the funny ‘Keluarga 69’. The late P. Ramlee was an extraordinary artiste; he was an actor, singer, composer and director.
The great actor passed away on 29 May 1973, and today, his house comes under the care of the Malaysian government, and is considered a proud national heritage.
The house has been turned into a memorial, dedicated to the preservation of his memory and of his late wife, the talented actress, Saloma.
