Traditional gongs man at work. Photographed at Monsopiad Cultural Village.


The entrance fee to Monsopiad Cultural Village includes a tour of the site, a visit to The House of Skulls and a cultural dance performance. The dance performance is held twice daily (morning and afternoon sessions). At the time of my visit, there were only 2 visitors.. myself and a Frenchman.

The Monsopiad Cultural Village is situated on private property owned and managed by the 6th and 7th direct descendants of Monsopiad, a Kadazan warrior.
