Terrapuri Heritage Village : Celebrating Terengganuís Architectural Heritage

Terrapuri Heritage Village : Celebrating Terengganuís Architectural Heritage

 

Fakhrul Islam
On May 5, 2014

Have you ever gotten up close and personal with a Terengganu traditional house?  If you havenít grab the opportunity to do so at the Terrapuri Heritage Village. Over here, 29 traditional Terengganu Malay houses have been restored and conserved to preserve the stateís architectural heritage for the benefit of future generations.

The specialty of the houses here is not a single nail has been used in their construction. Instead a traditional technique called  tebuk-pasak (mortise and tenon) is used to join pieces of wood. Another aspect worthy of note is use of chengal wood, well-known for its durability.

Through this restoration project, future generations will get to witness Terengganuís rich architectural heritage, including a 17th century Malay palace.

That said, letís take a quick tour of the Terrapuri Heritage Village to get a feel of the majesty of Terengganuís architectural heritage.
