Concubine Lane is a small lane located off Jalan Bandar Timah (Leech Street) in Ipoh. Along with Hale Lane and Market Lane.

 

Lorong Panglima (Panglima Lane), or better known locally as Concubine Lane (or Yi Lai Hong in Cantonese) is a narrow, uneven path, in Old Town Ipoh, believed to have been established in 1908. Concubine Lane became a residential area where many rich Chinese magnate and British officers were supposed to have kept their concubines and mistresses in the townhouse there. I think now you would know why the area is called as "Concubine Land".

Other than that, this area is also infamous for gambling, opium and prostitutes. After Malaysia gained independence in 1957, all the British officers left to their countries, leaving behind many historical buildings and colonial structures.

After some long ages, houses here are in advanced stages of disrepair. Some houses are overtaken by vegetation. Although somewhere, somehow, half a million Ringgit is being pumped to spiff up Concubine Lane. Now it's become as one of the favorite tourist spots in Ipoh.

Concubine Lane are safe to public now. Well conserved , preserved and restored, where the shops lots are now occupied by food stalls and other sales outlets.

 

People will be able to walk freely and encourage more people to visit the area to enjoy the culinary delights and other attractions. Concubine Lane might be the next major tourist attraction in the Ipoh city.
