This 1965 photo of MCKK boys in kain pelikat is a group photo of Form Two boys all from Class of ’68 at the old ‘Surau’ behind Big School, the Malay College Kuala Kangsar. These boys had Quran reading classes with an Ustaz (seen here in the middle).
Those days, Quran lessons were held at the old Surau and half the time was spent getting there and back to class. Many of them had to continue on reading the Quran when they were placed in MCKK in Form One. Thus, many of the boys khatam (finished/ graduated) their Quran at that old Surau.
