提起森属武来岸新村,许多人都会想到香火颇盛的玉封石拿督庙和风光迤逦的茅草山。

茅草山我已谈过,也上载了几张照片。作为一位道地人,我不能不提玉封石拿督庙。

玉封石拿督庙已有超过百年的历史,相传有一位名叫石满的原著民矿工,一日,他向同伴告别后即出门,过了些时候,托梦给朋友称已在一个山洞里仙逝,被玉皇大帝封为地方神,保佑村民。朋友半信半疑,却在所指山洞发现他的尸体,村民们就在原地建了一所小庙供奉他为玉封石拿督。

从此,村里人开始在此进香求福,颇为灵验。日治时期,传说村人被残暴日军令跪在大街,正要进行大屠杀时,突然一名日本军官似从天而降阻止了这场大灾难,村人相信这名日本军官就是玉封石拿督的化身。

紧急法令成立新村时,庙也搬迁到新村,七十年代才搬回原址,从新村通往庙的是条小路,还要经过三座破烂的木桥,没有电流供应等基本设备。除了本村人来上香,外人鲜少到此。

庙在1990年开始重建,在很巧妙的机缘下,一位风水师义务当设计师,同时也邀得一批好友献捐,修桥建路,奠下了今天这个规模。

最令人赞赏的是,理事会在1993年前成立‘善果园’基金会,将收到的香油钱和公众捐款,每月拨出数万马币帮助境内病黎,至今已拨出了三四百万马币,数千人受惠,求助者已有显著增加。

玉封石拿督庙还在发展中,已成为旅游胜地,许多外地游客周末都会前往,过年过节更是热闹。

Kampung Baru Broga is a small and relatively unknown new village where most of the villagers are rubber tappers. This is a unique village as half belongs to Negeri Sembilan and the other half to Selangor.

Since recent years, this small village began to gain popularity as a tourist destination as many visitors started to set their feet to this place. The main attractions are the scenic Bukit Lalang and the Sak Dato’ Temple.

I have uploaded a few photos that I took while I was on the top of Bukit Lalang in this blog. I will now show you some photos of Sak Dato’ Temple.

Sak Dato’ Temple is about 100 year old. It started as a small shrine for the villagers to pay respect and ask for blessings. Legend has it that an aboriginal by the name of Sak Man was selected as a local deity to guide and protect the villagers by the God of Heaven. The local believed that the deity could cure illnesses and bless them as well.

The temple was rebuilt in 1990 and since then much donations were collected to develop the temple as what it is today. The temple also set up a welfare fund to help the sick and the needy. Since 1993 more than 3 millions ringgit were given out to thousands of people.

谢谢拿督韓告诉我们石拿督廟的历史.十多二十年前到访过,以前我以为这间只是一间求財的廟而己.知道此廟善行,现在对此更尊敬了.
这个星期天我们的捷兔会会在廟后茅草山行山,然后下山会借用浴室,这次会添香油了,哈哈.

谢谢拿督的分享。
百年的庙了,烧得香多也会灵。

谢谢上面诸位网友的游览,并请介绍您们的朋友到武来岸石拿督庙和茅草山游玩。

For foodbin information, there are not less than ten restaurants from Broga town on your way to the temple serving kampung food at reasonable price. There is also a Ikan Bakar stall which is quite popular among visitors.

yee yin-我是用佳能相机。
