Hang Jebat Mausoleum
When Hang Tuah was told to be executed, Hang Jebat was heartbroken and ran amok in the palace. He threatened everyone who tried to defend Sultan Mansor Shah who ordered the execution. No one realised that Tun Perak had actually concealed HangTuah.
It was only when the Sultan decided to forgive Hang Tuah that the secret was exposed. When Hang Tuah returned from the jungle, he was ordered to execute Hang Jebat. He was horrified at the idea of killing his sworn brother. He told him, however, that he had to kill him because the Sultan had given him a direct order. The battle was said to last for three days until Hang Jebat was stabbed and died in his friend’s arms. The tomb itself is Achinese in design and is of the sort typically used to mark the burial places of the high ministers or Sultans of the time, so it is likely that Hang Jebat was a real person buried here. The age of the grave is unidentified, but it definitely predates the Portuguese occupation of 1512.
