According to the senior general manager of MK Land Group, Kamarulzaman Abu Bakar the whole idea of setting up the kampung houses is to reflect on the life that was during the days of our ancestors.
"The houses with the floors raised from the ground, the windows for ventilation, the verandah and intricate carvings on the pillars are very much part of the kampung house", he said.
Apart from the unique architecture, the surrounding areas are planted with herbs and fruit trees that highlight the tradition of the Malays then who loved to plant trees around their homes.
