In the same compound as the Museum Negeri Banda Aceh is the Rumah Aceh - a fine example of traditional Acehnese architecture, built without nails and held together with cord and pegs. It contains more Acehnese artefacts and war memorabilia. In front of the Rumah Aceh is a huge cast-iron bell, the Cakra Donya, said to have been a gift from a Chinese emperor in the 15th century.
