Rumah Gadang

Rumah Gadang is a traditional style of building appearance possessed by the people of Minangkabau in Indonesia. If you visit Sumatera Barat Province, you will see many building in this style; started from the official building like the offices for governments, banks, public building like market, bus stations, schools and people houses.

Beside in Sumatera Barat, Indonesia, you will also be able to see this such building style in Negeri Sembilan, Malaysia, because this land used to be the chosen one by Minangkabau ancestors to wander about in Malaysia since more than 700 years ago.

The style of the building was inspired by the shape of buffalo's head, indeed the term of Minang Kabau means buffalo's victory - minang is victory and kabau is buffalo. The call for that tribe appear after Minangkabau people in the past time managed to beat the soldiers from a great kingdom in Java island through a buffalo's fight.
