Bo Gong Gong-Tg.Air Hitam / 伯公宮-怡淡港

Location:- Tanjung Air Hitam, Ayer Hitam, Pontian, Johor / 怡淡港, 亞依淡, 笨珍, 柔佛州.

Aka “Persatuan Penganut Dewa Tua Pek Kong, Ayer Hitam, Kayu Ara Pasong, Pontian, Johor.” or Tokong Tanjung Air Hitam.

We were driving around looking for pineapple farms till this temple showed up from among the trees along this route that we were on. It has a beautiful Pai Lou / 牌樓 erected at its entrance and also a large compound. And since we’ve been driving for quite some time, we decided to stop by to stretch out backs. This temple is build devoted to the worshipped of Da Bo Gong / 大伯公. One could imagine the quietness of the night in this place since its surrounded by palm oil plantation. The caretaker were busy cleaning up the surrounding when we turned up. He was able to share a little about this temple to me but it was quite unfortunate that he was not able to recall what year this temple was erected.

Beside the prayer hall, an opened air shed is build for its committee or probably for its surrounding community to spend their leisure time. While on the other side, a shrine is build dedicated to its local deity, Na To Gong / 嗱督公. It also has a Wu Lou / Hulu / 葫蘆 shaped incense furnace build on its front yard.

It’s main altar on the interior is small and simple with a metal cage build on it to prevent theft. Well, its not surprising since its situated a distance away from the nearest town.

On it, it patron deity Da Bo Gong / 大伯公 sit grandly on the altar flanked by its its Wen Guan / 文官 and Wu Guan / 武官. Da Bo Gong / 大伯公 is also known as Fu De Zheng Shen / 福德正神. He is usually depicted as an old man with long white beards carrying a wooden staff and a gold ingot.

By the way, we found the pineapple farm along the route to Bukit Batu. A whole 2000acres of it.
