Monsopiad Cultural Village

Posted by Lakshi Pathberiya

89500 Kota Kinabalu, Sabah

On the banks of Sungai Moyog, Monsopiad is named after a legendary warrior and head-hunter, whose direct descendants established this private heritage centre in 1996. The highlight is the House of Skulls, which supposedly contains the ancient crania of Monsopiad's unfortunate enemies, as well as artefacts illustrating native rituals from the time when the bobolian (priest) was the most important figure in the community.

Opening Hours: 9am-5pm

Entrance Fee: Free for children
