Sabah's longest longhouse

NABAWAN: The longest longhouse in Sabah is currently being constructed.

Measuring 658 feet long and 30 feet wide, the RM300,000 “rumah panjang” as it is locally known, is being built in Kampung Salarom Taka, 80 km from Nabawan town and completion is scheduled for early next year.

The longhouse is located not far from Batu Punggul which is a popular tourist spot.
