As promised, here is the last batch of pictures taken during my visit to the heritage village at the Sabah Museum, Kota Kinabalu Sabah. So friends or tourists who happen to visit Sabah, are encourage to visit our Museum to experience the architecture of our traditional houses right in the city of Kota Kinabalu.

There are many uses of Bamboo and one unique way was the roofing of the traditional house as can be seen in the pictures. When inside the traditional house you will feel the cool atmosphere as the cooling effect generated by the bamboo roof.

It is not a toilet as I first thought but a bathing hut used by the villagers.

Below is the Murut traditional house. In the middle of the house is the Lansaran. A lansaran is made from wood and the floor pranks. A Lansaran is where a group of people jumps as much as possible to get a target tied as high above the Lansaran. It is a game whereby the team that who get the target declared as the winner. It requires much energy, perseverance, skills, abilities and capabilities of the participants to get the target.
