    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I drove thru Merbok Jetty on my way to Lembah Bujang noticed that it was another beautiful place for sightseeing. On our return, we stopped by to have a close look on this site.
    It was on your left before crossing the Merbok Bridge if you are heading to Lembah Bujang. You will strongly feel you want to had a stop on your way back, while you are on you way back, when you are on the bridge again, so quickly step some break, slow down your car, give a right turn signal and thurn to your right.
    This local government has spent a lot of money to build this jetty near the mangroves swamp area. The scenery around are beautiful.

  • reconstrcuted candis

    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

    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...

  • The park

    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.
