Celebrate the ancient ritual of Puja Pantai with the Mah Meri on 9 February 2019 - and be part of their mysterious tradition.
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.
During Puja Pantai at low tide, join the Mah Meri as they gather at the altar they built and present their offerings. Watch them dance to accompany the shaman, dressed in traditional attire, and receive blessings. Enjoy lunch at the beach before witnessing the rituals. It's a once-in-a-lifetime affair you should not miss.
