Monsopiad's House of Skulls, Penampang, Kota Kinabalu, Malaysia

In this pic I am in the Monsopiad's house of the skulls. I visited this place on 22 August 2012. Entrance fee to this village is RM 65 ($US 20) which a little pricey but it is worth paying because you learn more about Sabah culture. For your information, there are 42 human skulls in the house. They are the Monsopiad collection. He lived300 years ago and is considered as a Kadazan hero because he killed 42 criminals to make the village safe. Btw, the skulls displayed above me are original and they are kept in the house as part of the history of Kadazan-Dusun people. The people are the second largest indigenous tribe in Kota Kinabalu.  I noticed that their culture is similar with Dayak people in Eastern Kalimantan, Indonesia. For example, most Kadazan guys have tattoo as part of their culture.

Kadazan-Dusun, Monsopiad Village

The Kadazans and me in Monsopiad Cultural Village, Penampang, Malaysia. I visited this place on 22 August 2012. To enter this place you need to pay RM 65 (USD 20). You can trace the Sabah indigenous tribe here including to see the 42 skulls that are kept in the house of Monsopiad family. The house is opposite of the cultural village. it is really a worth trip.
