This area has been named after the junction of two branches near the first mosque of Kuala Pilah, the Tok Muar Mosque which forms a kuala. "The river bank is going to the left to the Pahang River and branches to the right to the Muar River and this is where the port is located rapidly with trading activity at that time."This port was once used by Arab and Persian merchants to sell spices while developing Islam in this area."Megat Sri Rama also lived here and he was said to have killed Sultan Mahmud Mangkat Dijulang who killed his wife because of a jackfruit before he resided in Ulu Seri Menanti," he said. According to Dr Mohd Rosli, a palace was erected during the reign of Yamtuan Antah, the sixth-largest Negeri Sembilan Yang di-Pertuan of Kampung Tanjung Jati."The palace was inhabited by Yamtuan Antah during his reign around 1876, but now looks sick and obsolete. However, some parts of this house are built with a unique design characterized by a unique castle symbolizing the magnifying identity."For example, this house uses an eighth pillar (eight pillars of pillars) and this design is synonymous with the government or the king."At that time, the castle was often used Penghulu Luak Ulu Muar to discuss with Yamtuan Antah. Yamtuan Antah is married to a girl from Luak Ulu Muar from this village, "he said.all the remains of the remains proved the existence of the Kuala Pilah Old Town and became the center of important administration at that time."I hope all these treasures are well-preserved and re-developed for attracting tourists here."If left behind, of course, the effect of this precious legacy is devastated by time and no history can be shown to a new generation," he said. .
