Haus Tambaran

Cultural Centre in Yentchen

A small, temporary haus tambaran has been built near the ruins of the old one, with hearths inside clay dishes and six garamut drums with catfish, crocodile, and female-figure carvings. Yentchen is noted for its wickerwork dancing costumes – figures of crocodiles, pigs, cassowaries and two-headed men, which are kept inside this haus tambaran.
