The Rong House Kon K’lor
lies by the famous river Dakbla, located at the end of Tran Hung Dao Street. The Rong House Kon K’lor is considered the most iconic Rong House in Central Highlands.
Rong house has long been not only the traditional communal house of Ba Na community but also the cultural symbol of every ethnic people here. Rong house is built when a village is founded and all villagers must join to complete the house. Functioning as a communal house, the roof of Rong House can be seen from all directions. All activities of the village take place at the village’s Rong House, especially festivals, meetings, ceremonies, weddings….
From afar, Rong house Kon K’lor stands out with its giant axe-shaped roof which was made of yellow-dried gianh leaves, being held up by 8 big wood pillars. Rong house’s roof is incredibly tall, steep and in a shape of an axe blade. The rafters are decorated with colorful designs with religious meaning, serving to honor the spirits and heroes of the village. Ba Na people use many symbols which are referring to the image of the brilliant God of Sun to decorate the Rong House.
