Kellie’s Castle

Built-in the early 20th century by a Scottish rubber plantation owner named William Kellie Smith, the castle was meant to be a gift for his son. However, the construction was stopped when Smith passed away in 1926. Today, Kellie’s Castle stands as a testament to Smith’s vision and is a popular tourist attraction in Ipoh.
The castle is a mix of Moorish, Indian, and European architectural styles, with intricate carvings and detailed stonework. Visitors can explore the castle’s many rooms, including the dining hall, the drawing room, and the bedrooms. If you’re a fan of scenic views or even sunrise or sunset, you can climb to the roof of the castle and enjoy the stunning view of the surrounding countryside.

The castle certainly has a fascinating history, and there are many stories and legends tied to it. One of the most popular stories is that the castle is haunted by the ghost of William Kellie Smith himself. Visitors have reported seeing his ghostly figure wandering the halls of the castle, and some have even claimed to hear his voice calling out to them.
