A jubilant ceremony was held on June 19 to inaugurate a Rong house in Kon Klor Village in Kon Tum City, one of the biggest traditional communal houses of ethnic minority people in the Central Highlands.

The house was rebuilt on the foundation of an old one, which was burnt down in May 2010. The house is measured at 22m in height, 17m in length, and 6.5m in width, on a total area of 100m². It is built using traditional materials such as iron wood, bamboo and leaves.

Local people contributed materials and working days to build the house which is expected to be an attractive destination for visitors. (Source: VNA)
