The lighthouse is located at the highest point of Bukit Melawati where visitors can enjoy thepanoramic views of the Straits of Melacca. It was built in 1907 and started to serve for navigationpurposes since 1910. Due to its strategic location, it was also used to monitor the Strait ofMalacca. It was named after a Dutch General and was widely used during the British colonialperiod.
