"Parit Jawa" Parit Jawa by l_joo

Parit Jawa Travel Guide: 8 reviews and 17 photos

Must be some peoples's idea to paint all the Parit Jawa's colonial shophouses into light yellowish color, visually quite consistent in fact, the moment looking at it made me feel wanted to snap some photos. I was brought here by a local salesperson who was very much into eating good foods, he brought me here to look at the taoist temple, regret not about delicious foods this time, next time maybe. He said this temple is full of believers when the season comes, peoples from faraway came here for the flags, special religious flags that able to uplift one's financial luck.

Along the coastal road from Batu Pahat to Muar, you can actually see many temples and mosques on both sides of road, average at every 10kms a mosque/temple, and this one in Parit Unas is perhaps the biggest (told by my friend). In fact, I was more intrigue by the muddy estuary here, surprisingly less litters while the sea water was almost crystal clear. Temple is mid size, a typical Malaysian mixed temple with many vendors selling religious products, drinks, snacks, etc. There's also a fortune teller here, he is a man in yellow with a table and a huge umbrella underneath a tree.
