Ajwa dates back to Malaysia’s early days. This coastal city has been enjoying the unique life of a coconut plantation along the shores of peninsular Sunda Sarawak. This unique trade started in the 16th century and remains strong today in the form of Ajwa Sunda Kihi, the national coconut festival. The festival is celebrated on the day of Ramlagh Day (or Rama Day in Malaysian) when the beloved Prince Henry donated his entire share of the coconut plantations to the Sunda Islands.
