Bei Di Gong-Mancis / 北帝宮-文積

Bei Di Gong-Mancis / 北帝宮-文積.

Location :- Mancis, Pahang / 文積, 彭亨州.

The 1st time i visited this place was about 5-6years ago. The gates were open and much people here. Most were seen offering incense and joss papers. Back then, this place has a running stream from the hills. And the water is piped to a huge ponds behind the temple. The surrounding is huge and it has a Bat formation hill behind the temple.

There used to be tilapia in the ponds behind, and the ponds below the temple. The surrounding is fill with vegetables and fruits trees. I believe the environment in this temple is quite self sustainable.

Later after a few years, I visited the town nearby call Mancis / 文積 for a cup of evening coffee and I came to know from locals that it was a festival day when I first visited . I was told that this place only opens 2 to 3 times a year. I was eager to go there but the vehicle I was traveling in does not permit me to do so.

This year unfortunately, it was closed when i visited there with a friend. The surrounding ponds which house much tilapia’s where now empty. Ripe fruits were in abundance and much were seen decaying on the ground.

This temple is located about 5km off-road from Mancis. The entrance road is between Kampung Ponson and Kampung Shafie, along the route to Mancis town, Pahang. There should be a turn off around N3.2102, E102.1734. Follow the path slowly and you’ll come to a huge empty land. Drive along it, you should be able to locate this temple. And you gonna need an high all terrain vehicle.

Worshipped on the main altar of this temple is their patron deity, Bei Di also known as Xuan Wu / 玄武, Xuan Tian Shang Ti /玄天上帝, Zhen Wu Da Di / 真武大帝 or Pak Tai in Cantonese.

I hope to return to this temple after a few years and find everything is as beautiful as i’ve first visited it.
