Rumah Gadang

Rumah Gadang are the traditional spired roof homes of the Minangkabau in Indonesia. These houses serve as a residence, a hall for family meetings, and for ceremonial activities and are owned by the women of the family who live there; ownership is passed from mother to daughter.

The photo (above) posted by TYWKIWDBI shows the amazing roofline of one of these homes.
