About Puteri

Puteri is based on Puteri Gunung Ledang or The Fairy Princess of Mount Ophir.

Gunung Ledang is the tallest mountain in Johor, Malaysia, while Sultan Mansur Shah in the folktale is based in Melaka. That puts into perspective the sheer length of the bridge the Sultan would have had to build!

Some recurring characters from this period include the warrior Hang Tuah who was at this time already an old man.

The tale was adapted into film in 1961 and again as a big-budget epic film in 2004.
