Bahau is translated as "Horse's Mouth" while the nearby town, Mahsan means "Horse's Body" in Cantonese. Bahau is a town in the state of Negeri Sembilan in Malaysia. In the 1940s, Bahau was known simply as a small town along the Gemas train line travelling north-east through the Malay Peninsula. Founded in a slightly elevated position and surrounded by jungle, it was this off-the-beaten-track location that was chosen as a resettlement area for a wartime civilian population from Singapore. Bahau, which was set up in 1943 by the Japanese army in Singapore, with the express approval of the local Catholic Church, was home to around 3,000 mainly Singaporean Catholics for nearly two years. Three hundred Eurasian families and 400 Chinese catholic families had left Syonan for Bahau. Becoming the principal town of Jempol District, Negeri Sembilan, the population of Bahau is made up of mainly Chinese, Malays (from the Felda areas in the outskirts of the town) and Indians, who live in town and the estates on the outskirts.
