Malay House (Rumah Penghulu)

A crowning achievement of the Heritage of Malaysia Trust, Rumah Penghulu, or Malay House, is a traditional stilt house from Kampung Sungai Kechil, a small town in Kedah in the very north of the country.

It was the house of a local headman and is suitably impressive in design. There are three main areas; the living area, the bedroom and the kitchen and dining area. The house is solid wood and was built through the 1920s and 30s.

It was bought by the trust and painstakingly moved to Kuala Lumpur where it was restored to its former glory and is a celebrated part of preserving the nation’s heritage.

Practical Info

Rumah Penghulu is a 10-minute walk from Raja Chulan monorail station, otherwise it is a 20-minute walk or a quick taxi ride from KLCC railway station or Ampang Park railway station.
