The "lost city" of Gelanggi or Linggiu, claimed to have been hidden in the jungles of Johor for more than a thousand years, does not exist, said an archaeologist in the National Heritage Department. Khalid Syed Ali, the curator of archaeology in the department's research and development division, said a team of researchers carried out a study over a month in July last year but found no evidence of the "lost city". Quoting British novelist John Mortimer: "Never believe a rumour until you hear it officially denied." twopits

The lost city of johor will never be found as it will rewrite some history and undermine the so called superiority of certain races in the country. It is also possible that the lost city now is inhabited by giant big foots.
