Rumah Penghulu Abu Seman, Kuala Lumpur

4.4
#6 of 17 in Historic Sites in Kuala Lumpur
Historic Site Tourist Spot
Immerse yourself in Malay culture at Rumah Penghulu Abu Seman, one of the oldest surviving Malay houses. True to Malay vernacular architecture, the house is made of dark wood and sits atop sound stilts with vented slats in the walls. Visitors can wander the interior on guided tours, or simply peek in from the outside. Below the house you'll spot a hand-carved canoe used in religious ceremonies with a bird's head carved into the prow. The tour kicks off with an informational video followed by the insight of a knowledgeable guide. Water, fans, and mosquito spray are all included with entrance--these items are considered necessities in the wilderness. Work out when and for how long to visit Rumah Penghulu Abu Seman and other Kuala Lumpur attractions using our handy Kuala Lumpur itinerary builder.
