Celebrate the ancient ritual of Puja Pantai with the Mah Meri - and be part of their mysterious tradition.
Hari Moyang, Puja Pantai is the last of the important rituals still being practiced by the Mah Meri. It is believed to appease the sea spirits, and honor the protector spirits. Many years ago, a ship was caught in a big storm off Carey Island coast, near to Tanjung Rhu. The islanders believe that the Moyang Getah ( Spirit of the Rubber) had dragged it to the shores against all odds.
At low tide, the Mah Meri would gather at the altar they built and present their offerings. Dressed in their traditional costumes, the performers would dance to accompany the shaman. These are some of the fascinating things you will get to witness, carried out for generations across centuries. After the ritual, you will have lunch and enjoy some activities at the cultural village.
