Sulur Tok Selehor

The place of prayer and worship for a Wali known as Tok Selehor, or his real name Abd. Rahman bin Othman. It's located in the Kok Pasir cemetery and is in fact, in the shape of a grave.

The suluk or subterranean hut was built late in the nineteenth century. He also built a madrasah where children came to learn. Tok Selehor was a very pious man, and he always feared that he would one day become arrogant and boastful. The suluk was meant as a reminder to him, that all of us will one day return to our Creator. The suluk remains there to this very day.

As for the madrasah, it was upgraded and is now know as the Tok Selehor Mosque.
