Bandar Ikan Patin

Temerloh, the second largest town in Pahang is situated on the banks of Pahang River into which Sungai Semantan flows. It is located about 130 kilometers from Kuala Lumpur. Famous for its highly-prized fresh water fish, the 'patin', the river is an ideal jump-off point to the routes that lead to Taman Negara and Tasik Bera.

Temerloh town sits at the confluence of the Pahang and Semantan Rivers, which is why it is rich with freshwater fish such as Patin (silver catfish), Jelawat, Baung, Tenggalan, Lampam, Belida, Tilapia and Kerai. As the home of the Patin fish, the Temerloh folks have special dishes that bring out the best taste of the fish. Located along the town's riverside, Pekan Sehari is a place where all kinds of goods and commodities can be found and sold at a reasonable price.

Gunung Senyum

Gunong Senyum is made up of limestone and rock, estimated to be around 3,000 years old, whilst the lowlands on the east is made of mudstone and shale estimated at around 2,100 years old.
