Pura Tanjung Sabtu





Built in the princely style of 18th century Terengganu palace, located on 14 acres country estate on a promontory of Nerus River, once a country retreat of the late Sultan Zainal Abidin III of Terengganu (1881-1918). THe private residence of Tengku Ismail bin Tengku Su is now open to paying guests who would like to experience the courtly living of Terengganu's past.

Pura Tanjung Sabtu is a complex comprising several traditional Terengganu houses and palaces that age about 100 to almost 200 years old, situated on a sprawling 14-acre land. The remarkably ambitious project, which began in 1992, is owned and managed by Tengku Ismail bin Tengku Su, the second cousin of the current Sultan of Terengganu. His attempt in preserving Terengganu’s traditional built heritage is highly lauded and has been featured in numerous international architectural magazines. The house has been receiving guests continuously since 1995 and Tengku Ismail regularly holds lunches of local traditional Malay fare. The interiors of the houses are graced with age old crafts and historical artefacts, turning the whole place into a living museum. Tengku Ismail also designs and produces outstanding songket for Malaysian royalties and dignitaries. Pura Tanjung Sabtu offers a homestay opportunity for guests to experience living in a traditional Terengganu house.
