Syed Ariffin, Syed Ahmad Iskandar (2003) The Malaysian experience the conservation of Kota Duyung. In: 2nd IFSAH 2003 & International Symposium on Asian Heritage, 22 August to 10 September 2003, Faculty of Built Environment : Universiti Teknologi Malaysia.



This paper reviews the Kota Duyung conservation project and it is hoped that the experience gathered in its process is beneficial to others as well. Kota Duyung has been the nickname of the house of Dato’ Biji Sura for a very long time. The house is located at Pulau Duyung Kecil, part of the greater island of Duyung, rested by the Terengganu riverside. The objective of the project is to conserve the building according to the most appropriate conservation approach. As most part of the building was ruinous in which it was too little left for Kota Duyung to be of any significant physically the project adopted an approach that might be consider controversial by some. For the future survival of Kota Duyung the method that this project engaged in was a combination of several conservation approaches.
