Discover the Rumah Gadang traditional house. It is a big house where the family lives with all the traditionally and customary aspects. In Minangkabau the “rumah gadang” is not the property of an individual but that of all the family clan. As the Minangkabau people adhere to matriarchy, the “rumah gadang” is occupied by a woman with the mother’s brother as the head of the family (“mamak tungganal”). Bachelors are not allowed to sleep in the “rumah gadang”, but must sleep in the prayer house (“surau”) since boyhood.

They stand high on wooden piles, topped with a layered split-bamboo roof shaped in a sweeping curved arc, and they are incised with red, black, and yellow detailed wood carvings on the exterior walls.
