My World Tuesday - A Malaysian House

This is how a typical Malay house would look. Location: Taman Tengku Anis, Tumpat, Kelantan


Above: This is the 'Wakaf" a Malay name for a hut or rest place. It is commonly found near the Paddy fields, and now a days it also named after a place such as Wakaf Baharu, my home place.

I love the house. It looks airy and the palms in the front yard are so nice. It's a beautiful house and you took good photos.

Thanks for sharing.

The roof structure is interesting, I like that.

I think that may be a typical Malay family home of a rich family.
Last time we went through Malaysia we saw many more quite different homes.

Tabib said...

You are right Arija, this is a house of a rich at "Taman" or garden, some sort of exhibition home I think.
KBGuy may show more 'typical' ordinary home at Kelantan, Malaysia.
Anyway great picture.

Good day sir. Kbguy, thats not a typical house in malaysia. On rich people can have a house like that. Its expensive to built that kind of house, with all that intricate carving, btw i really love the roof structure of this one. And this one is probably not a house at all.

Lovely house. This house is based on traditional Malaysian architecture particularly state of Kelantan. Of course it is newly bulit and carries the modern look.
