14 Best Batu Pahat Attractions

The Batu Pahat District is a district within the state of Johor, Malaysia that lies at the southeastern end of Johor Bahru. Batu Pahat is the 16th largest urban area in Malaysia in terms of population size. It consists of a population that is majority in Chinese, followed by Malays and Indians.

The town got its unique name Batu Pahat, which means “chiselled stone”, from the quarries near the water. There are multiple myths on the origin of this name. Back in 1456, the Siamese army, led by Admiral Awi Di Chu, camped in Batu Pahat before attacking Malacca. Legend has it that the offensive Siamese troops were chipping rocks off at a rocky spot within the coastal village of Kampung Minyak Beku. This was done in hope to obtain valuable drinking water during their retreat from the Melaka troops, led by Tun Perak, the far-famed Bendahara (Prime Minister) of the Malacca Empire.

Another plausible explanation for the origin of the name is that the fortress (“a famosa”) built by the Portuguese after capturing Melaka, which was made up of granite rocks taken from the mouth of Sungai Batu Pahat.

Despite not many foreign tourists understanding much about history of Batu Pahat, it’s a well-liked vacation spot for locals in Malaysia. It’s a town you should visit for your coming vacation that offers beaches and forests for the nature-lovers, shopping malls for the discount hunters and shopaholics, and remarkable history to be enjoyed by the history fanatics.

This recreational forest is found not far away from town centre, about five kilometres away. It’s considered as a convenient and safe place to visit because it isn’t too far off from civilization, situated around at the end of residential area. Make sure you stop by and enjoy this gem brought to you by nature before heading off to another destination.
