Research and excavation at the archaeological site in Sungai Batu, Bujang Valley started in February 2009. This site has been identified as the civilisation complex at Bujang Valley with an area more than 3km2, with 90 small hills. Its locations by the riverflow of Sungai Batu and its tributaries, made it unique in that each separate tributary formed its own island. Hence, the location of Sungai Batu was important due to its strategic location for trading and defence activities. This site is less than 10 km from Sungai Petani, and 80 km from Alor Setar. It is located in an oil palm estate, near the Merbok-Semeling road.
