Sri Gading (also known as Seri Gading, Chinese:四加亭) is a town as well as parliamentary constituency in Johor, Malaysia, located in the district of Batu Pahat. It lies south-east of Batu Pahat town, north-west of Ayer Hitam and west of Yong Peng.

Origin of name

The name Seri Garing means 'The Gorgeous Ivory' in Malay. The origin of this name can be traced back to the time when Sultan Ibrahim hunts an elephant at this place, and was impressed by the luster of the ivory.

However, it is not easy to spot elephants in Sri Gading today, even back since late 70's.


It is about 13km from Batu Pahat town, about 250km from Kuala Lumpur and about 90km from Johor Bahru.
