House of Twelve Roofs (Bubongan Duabelas)

This is another attraction that I wasn’t able to visit when we were in Brunei. This sultanate's oldest extant building is now a museum dedicated to the longstanding 'special relationship' between Brunei and the United Kingdom. The museum displays many fine shots of Queen Elizabeth II.

This is called Twelve Roofs House because of its distinctive roof form. Like other countries in Asia, this one also has a remnant of the World War II. The swimming pool at the backyard, where the Japanese soldiers executed people, is believed to be haunted.

The building is 1.5km southeast of Sungai Kianggeh, towards the Brunei Museum, on a hilltop dominating the river.
