Your Patronage Will Help to Preserve Architecture Treasure of Terengganu
Pura Tanjung Sabtu is located on 14 acres of lawns, gardens, and fruit orchard, a family inheritance once the country retreat of the late H.H. Sultan Zainal Abidin III of Terengganu . It lies on a promontory of slow-moving Nerus river, a tributary of Terengganu river, overhung with luxuriant natural vegetation of bamboo, Rengas trees and Nibong palms. Its name is a combination of the sanskrit word pura which means palace, temple or city, and Tanjung Sabtu is the name of the village where it is located.
His travels abroad to Europe, Thailand, Indonesia and especially Japan were also influential. While working at Malaysia Pavillion during the world exposition 1970, Expo’ 70 Osaka (Japan), Tengku Ismail visited Nijo-Jo Palace built by the first Tokugawa Shogun, Ieyasu, in 1603. This traditional Japanese wooden palace deeply impressed him. It was then that he decided that one day he would do everything in his power to preserve the traditional architecture of his home town state.
The complex is divided into two wings. Visitors and guests enter through the Balai or main entrance hall, the Rumah Seberang Baroh consisting of an open one-sided wall-panel of "Dinding Kembung Keset" Finely planed boards were fitted vertically and pegged into position by narrow, wooden cover-ribs. Here, a platform extends out as an ideal location for evening entertainment. The Singhora clay tiles and graceful gables for the roof of these houses were retrieved from the dismantled wooden palaces of Dalam Kota Istana Maziah. All the seven houses of the main complex, averaging 20 feet by 30 feet each, are connected by raised wooden walkways. The names given to the houses are those of villages from where they were brought.
