He Ling Gong-Pt.Berong / 合靈宮-馬弄港

Location:- Parit Berong, Senggarang, Batu Pahat, Johor / 馬弄港, 新加蘭, 峇株巴辖, 柔佛.

Aka Persatuan Penganut Dewa Fa Zu He Ling Gong.

We were heading towards Batu Pahat town after a visit to Pekan Nenas till we came about a small signage with drawing of snakes on it. Since we were driving at a moderate speed, i only had a glance of it and thought there were a snake temple here. We decide to make a Uey and followed the signage in til we came upon this temple.

When we arrived, i was astonished by its surrounding. As like many temple, a stage is build in its compound for festival purposes but uniquely here, it is decorated with huge painting of snakes. Beside it, a huge hall is also build for its festival and community use.

On the other end, shrine’s for the worship of its Wu Ye / 5 General / 五爺 and Na To Gong / 嗱督公 is overlooking at the road leading in. It also has a structure in front that i believe is some sort of Pakua well /Ba Gua Jing / 八卦井.

While our way in, the caretaker was already following us on her motorbike. She was able to provide me a bit of detail about this place and with permission, allowed us to record its surrounding.

Beside a paint job, everything is still in great condition. Well that’s about the exterior. Now on the inside of this temple, huge statue’s of its main patron deities Fa Zhu Gong San Sheng Jun 法主公三圣君 sits grandly on it’s beautifully crafted altar. Usually differentiate by the color of their face, they are known as Zhang Gong Sheng Jun 張公圣君 (black face), Xiao Gong Sheng Jun 蕭公圣君 (green face), and Hong Gong Sheng Jun 洪公圣君 (red face). Zhang Gong Sheng Jun is also known to the Hokkien as Huat Chu Kong. There are other deities worship on altar too, among them are Ji Gong Huo Fo / 濟公活佛, Guang Ze Zun Wang / 廣澤尊王, Xuan Tian Shang Ti / 玄天上帝, etc.

A section on the further left on this altar worship the deity Hua Guang Da Di / 華光大帝 along with Tie Guai Li / Iron-Crutch Li / 鐵拐李 and Shan Cai Tong Zi / 善財童子.

On the further right section of this altar, Tai Sui / 太歲 along with Fu De Zheng Shen / 福德正神 aka Da Bo Gong / 大伯公, Lord Guan Di / 關帝 and a deity unknown to me.

On the rear prayer hall, its Yin altar is worshipped here. This room is very dim and its only lighted by some red and green lights. Deities of its Da Er Bo Ye / Tua Dee Ya Pek / 大二伯爺 in here are almost in real human form and size. One unique thing, its incense pot is rarely seen as it is carved with figure of Niu Tou /Ox Head /牛头 and Ma Mian /Horse Face / 馬面 on it. On its altar, deities of the underworld are worshiped here. Deities includes Yan Lou Wang / King Yama / 閻羅王 aka Yan Luo Tian Zi / 閻羅天子, Da Er Bo Ye / Tua Dee Ya Pek / 大二伯爺, Wen Pan Guan / 文判官, Wu Pan Guan / 武判官, Zhong Kui / 鍾馗, Xiao Zi Ye / Hau Ji Ye / 孝子爺, etc. If you wanna know how the Chinese underworld looked like, it has a wall painting’s of the 10 court of hell in here too.

Set of stairs brought us to an upper level of this premise where an altar is place here devoted to the worship of Dou Mu Yuan Jun / 斗母元君. Among other deities on this altar are Lord Buddha / Fo Zu / 佛祖, Ti Zang Wang Pu Sa / 地藏王普薩, Zhu Sheng Niang Niang / 注生娘娘, Tian Hou Niang Niang / Goddess Tian Hou / 天后娘娘, etc.

Definitely a nice place.

    I used to drop by the temple since 2001 as I took my leisurely drive to Kg Segenteng. After discovering this website, I paid a visit and one of the villager there told me that on the upper floor. I went up and found an old wooden fish (mu yee) I chanted a round of Ta Peh Chou and …
