Hello friends in TE.
Tanjung Tuan or Cape Rachado (as named by the Portuguese, meaning Broken Cape) is an exclave of the state of Malacca, Malaysia. It is a cape with a lighthouse facing the Strait of Malacca. Though it is administered by the Malacca state government, the area used to fall under the sovereignty of Negeri Sembilan which surrounds it.
The coastal area off the cape, is famous as the site of the naval Battle of Cape Rachado in 1606, between the Dutch VOC and Portuguese fleets, the opening act for the series of conflicts between the coalition of Dutch-Johore and Portuguese Malacca that ultimately ended with the Portuguese surrender of the city and fort of Malacca to the VOC in 1641.
Thanks for viewing!
