Sultan Idris & Sir Hugh Low
This photograph shows Sultan Idris Murshidul'adzam Shah together with Sir Hugh Low. In 1877, Sir Hugh Low (British Resident of Perak), established the Perak Council of State at Kuala Kangsar, with several leading Malay royals and chiefs and two mining towkays.
This governing council gradually formulated the modern laws of Perak. The affairs of Kinta were frequently taken up to Kuala Kangsar by Sultan Idris of Kampar. They were considered as the two pioneers of modern Perak.
