    Di bulatan jalan dam/jalan tengah nipah terdapat repilka berbentuk anjing dan di bulatan jalan silam (kampung muhibah/kampung tabanak terdapat replika berbentuk burung layang layang berserta sarang burung serta di bulatan jalan silam (taman sri perdana) terdapat pula replika sepasang payau (rusa). ianya ada hubung kait dengan legenda kuno cerita penemuan gua madai oleh nenek apui.
