People believe that the other end of science is religion. And I added that the magic is in between. If one starts from the religion side, he will end up with science and vice versa. It does not matter which end you begin your journey, you must first pass through the test of magic. I have experienced magic, hope you will too. All materials are for entertainment purposes only.

Mambang Laut (Sea Haunters)
The Malay fishermen society in Northern Sumatera such as:
Tanjungbalai, Batubara, Pagurawan, Pantai Cermin, Bedagai, Belawan or along the
coastal areas of Eastern Langkat believe that the sea is controlled by magic
powers. So they worship “Mambang Laut” or “Sea Haunter”.
The Mambang Laut controls the eight directions and they are known
by various names:
The inland Malay society although not influenced by the sea
customs, also believes in the existence of gnomes controlling water, earth and
wind. Although such believes are prohibited by Islam, the beliefs in Haunter
and Gnomes survived until today.
In Malay Peninsula, “Mambang Laut” is called “Hantu Laut”.
