Historically, Batu Gajah has always been an important name in the Kinta Valley. With extensive tin mining operations in the past, Batu Gajah was one of the major tin miners in the country. The Kinta Valley was built upon tin operations which made Batu Gajah a significant contributor to the development of the area. Moving forward, Batu Gajah is now a peaceful municipality that still manages to retain many of its old world charms.

With the completion of the double tracks expansion project, Batu Gajah is now easily accessible via the West Coast Line. Taking an ETS from KL to Batu Gajah makes the journey a fast and comfortable one as well.


Batu Gajah is frequented by travelers due to its abundance of attractions. Kellie’s Castle and the TT5 Tin Dredge are known as historical sites which provide an insight into the past. As one of the only two left in the country, the TT5 Tin Dredge lets visitors experience what it’s like to be on a fully operational tin dredge in the past. Currently, Batu Gajah is also venturing into eco-tourism for nature lovers with pristine locations such as the Kinta Nature Park and the Papan Nature Reserve.
