An early settlement nearby Sungai Bernam is named Kampung Kubu (Fort Village) . The Bugis community planted jambu fruit trees along the river bank . As population grew overtime , the area is referred to as Kampung Jambu . A mosque is also built to cater its Muslim community. During a visit by a British Straits of Settlements official, Sir List, the state officials headed by Raja Itam referred the area as Tanjong, as quoted by its local ulama Tuan Haji Mustafa bin Raja Kemala . However , it is also known locally as Kg.Kubu, Kg.Bugis, Kg.Jambu and Tg.Jambu . Hence , Sir List 'officially' named it as Tanjong Malim to avoid confusion . (Malim or mualim refers to the pious local Muslim community) .
