City (pop., 2000 prelim.: 566,211), West (Peninsular) Malaysia. Its name comes from a local tree, whose poisonous resin was once used by indigenous people for hunting. The modern city dates from the 1890s, when British tin-mining companies were set up. Immigrant Chinese were brought in to work the tin deposits, and their descendants now dominate the city. It is the country's mining capital.
