Kuala Lumpur : Rumah Penghulu Abu Seman

Rumah Penghulu Abu Seman

This Rumah Penghulu used to be a local headman's house restored at Jalan Stonor in Kuala Lumpur. It was originally located in Kampung Sungai Kechil, a small village in Mukim Bagan Samak, Bandar Baharu, Kedah.

The heritage centre of the Badan Warisan Malaysia (Heritage of Malaysia Trust) is located in a mock Tudor building dating from 1925.

In the garden is a bamboo hut built by Orang Asli of the Temiar community and a restored Malay timber house known as the Rumah Penghulu. It is beautifully decorated throughout with intricate carvings and has been furnished to reflect a house in the early thirties with some wedding accoutrements.

From the mid 1920s to the early 1930s, Penghulu Abu Seman bin Nayan completed the ensemble of buildings which make up the house. When he died, his son Ibrahim bin Abu Seman inherited both the title and the ownership of the house. Unfortunately Penghulu Ibrahim had no son to succeed him and the house was eventually left vacant.

The rumah ibu was originally built for a Tok Taib who was a person of note in Kampung Paya Takong. When the latter passed away, this structure was sold to Penghulu Abu Seman who dismantled and moved it to kampung Sungai Kechil in 1924. The balai was probably added in the 1930s.

The three main sections of the house, the hall (balai), main house (rumah ibu) and kitchen / dining room (dapur / ruang makan) were constructed at different times and their origins differ.

The centre hosts regular exhibitions with a heritage theme and has a gift shop and reference library. A guided tour and viewing of a video documentary on the restoration is available.
