Jertih is 15 minutes by car from Kuala Besut, the coastal Trengganu fishing village.
Further inland, at Kg Bt 13, is one of the most amazing phenomenon ( and rather unknown ) in Malaysian culture.
Here is the sanctuary of Ayah Pin and his disciples.
Here is what you see when you finally come to the commune of Ayah Pin ! Alice In Wonderland ? Disneyland ?
The place is called The Sky Kingdom.
There is also a giant umbrella, and boat, all part of the imposing structures built on just 1 hectare.
They have their Prayer Sessions on Saturday evenings and Sunday mornings, so perhaps you can try to drop in at those times.
Entry is permitted to well-wishers, but they would not allow government people who try to harrass and disrupt their activities.
Today's ( 04 July 2005 ) local newspaper The Star is reporting that the followers of Ayah Pin have been arrested by police, but Ayah Pin himself has not been caught.
Freedom of worship in Malaysia ? You can judge for yourself.
