Batu Kurau, Perak

Batu Kurau (GPS: 4.97466, 100.79475) is a small town in the district of Larut Matang, Perak. It is located to the north of Taiping. Perhaps the only call to fame for Batu Kurau is that it is the birthplace of the late Kamaruddin Mat Isa, the fifth Menteri Besar of Perak, who served from 1970 to 1974.
