    reconstrcuted candis

    by Audrey118 Written Mar 30, 2003

    2 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: There were around 8 candis reconstructed...apparently there must be hundreds of them. Somehow the magical of the reconstructed sites do not appeal to me - ithe photos of the finding in the original state shown in the museum was more intriguing.

    Arrays of Casktes behind the museum

    CASKETS

    Favorite thing: Behind the museums you will see an array of caskets.

    You must remember that unlike many chedis, these were not built to house ashes etc,...it is not a tomb temple.

    Archaeologists revealed that the Candi Bukit Batu Pahat with six intact granite caskets with nine chambers. The chambers contained mainly Tantric symbols, gems and other small objects considered precious or magically powerful.

    The purpose of the multi-chambered caskets, with their foundation deposits, was to ensure by magical means. that the shrine, image or stupa built above them, had the magical power.

    The park

    by Audrey118 Updated Mar 30, 2003

    2 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Beyond the museum, you will need to walk along beautifully landscaped park which houses some of the sites. Many of the temple sites were reconstucted using the orginal materials.

    You will need walking shoes to climb these gradual steps.

    Visit the small museum

    by Audrey118 Written Mar 30, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: There is a museum Gallery One which is opent daily and it is free to the public. On ehte day we were there, the State minister was due for an official visit, so it was tip top!!! and people were really decking like Xmas tree!!!

    Anyway, i was rather impressed by the small town had such a well presented albeit small museum.

    Lots of photographs some relocated stone pillars, pots and jewels.

    Fondest memory: The picture below is one of the carved stone findings - this must be the leg or the end part of the stairs reaching into the temple. It must be quite glorious in those days
