Mah Meri Cultural Village
At Mah Meri Cultural Village is well worth a visit to learn about the distinct culture and traditions of the people of Mah Meri, a subgroup of the Senoi people who live along the coast of Selangor.
The Mah Meri are renowned for their masterful woodcarving and expressive masks worn during dance rituals to represent ancestral spirits. Call or email to make an appointment before making the journey out to Pulau Carey, since the villagers are not always around.
The village museum have excellent displays of Mah Meri art with accompanying texts explaining the mythologies and local legends informing each piece, such as the story of a tiger trapped in a cage that inspired one of the Mah Meri's most iconic wood sculptures. Many of the figures are representations of some of the more than 700 gods recognised by the Mah Meri; a few pieces are more than 100 years old.
