Minangkabau architecture

Pak Asrial Rajo Batuah stands proudly in front of the beautiful Rumah Gadang (in Minangkabau 'big house') that he built in his West Sumatra hometown. Minangkabau architecture - typical of West Sumatra - is instantly recognisable for the sweeping buffalo horn roof and for its beautifully intricate exterior paintwork.
