Taiping the Historical Heaven Land

Hi there people, =D

Welcome to this blog that will give a deep insight of Taiping and it's interesting places.

Hopefully this site would reminiscence all the past memories for those that stayed in Taiping, while to those that never visited Taiping yet would be fascinated by the storytelling that I'm about to tell here.

To start with, Taiping is a town located in northern PerakMalaysia. With a population of 191,104 (in 2007),] it is the second largest town in Perak after Ipoh, the state capital. Taiping took over Kuala Kangsar's role as the state capital from 1876 to 1937, but was then replaced by Ipoh. Its development slowed down after that, but in recent years the town has begun developing rapidly again.

The word Taiping actually taken from the word Tai-Peng, in which Chinese dictionary state the meaning as Eternal Peace.

Taiping also receives some limelight for being the wettest town in Peninsular Malaysia, with an average rain of 5 times a week. . Its unusual rainfall has also led to a fertile collection of flora and century-old rain trees in the Taiping Lake Gardens.
