Padang Merdeka is a strip of grass that was established as a memorial following WWI. It is best known as the place where the British exhibited the body of Tok Janggut (Father Beard), a respected elder who was killed at Pasir Puteh in 1915 after leading a 2000-strong uprising against British colonial land taxes. The real attraction of the Padang Merdeka area is the cluster of museums close by. There is one central phone number (748 2266) for all museums.
