Cabinet to get report on lost city in August | The Star

PENANG: The Culture, Arts and Heritage Ministry will submit to the Cabinet in August a report on the initial findings of its expedition to the lost city of Kota Gelanggi in Johor.

Minister Datuk Seri Dr Rais Yatim said Museum and Antiquities Department director-general Datuk Dr Adi Taha had briefed him on the expedition’s early findings.

“So far, we have sporadic findings, a little bit here and there which I am not at liberty to disclose yet,” Rais told reporters after opening a joint exhibition on Reminiscences of the Straits Settlements Through Postcards by the National Archives of Malaysia and Singapore here yesterday. He also launched a book on the same title at the function.

Interest in the lost city was triggered after researcher Raimy Che Ross claimed that he might have located the lost city of Kota Gelanggi.

Three teams recently began their initial research and search for the city.
