Rumah Penghulu Abu Seman



The Rumah Penghulu Abu Seman is one of the oldest surviving traditional Malay houses. Built in stages between 1910 and the early 1930s, it was owned by the local headman of Mukim Bagan Samak, Bandar Baharu, Kedah. 

Originally located in Kampung Sungai Kechil, a small village in the northern part of Peninsula Malaysia, it was rescued, relocated and restored (1996-1997) by Badan Warisan Malaysia. Today, it stands as one of the finest remaining examples of Malay vernacular architecture. 

Located in the heart of Kuala Lumpur with its many high rise buildings, the Rumah Penghulu is surrounded by a traditional herb & heritage garden which has over 50 species of trees & plants of environmental, cultural & historic interest to Malaysians.
