Rumah Penghulu Abu Seman, Kuala Lumpur
(4.3/5 based on 110+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • In 10-15 minute walk from the towers get transportation are built small houses shalashiki made from trees, as if reminding local village.

  • Located in the heart of city centre where surrounded by high rise building. A historical place where you can see the architecture of this place is built up many years back. 
  • 开放时间为11点和下午3点,每次半个小时讲解,准点到才能进内。12点半到的,只能外围看看,感觉很有味道的院子。全木质,旁边都是高楼各种酒店,唯独它很清雅的立在这里。值得看看。
