The Rong House symbolises Ethnic groups of Bahnar, Jarai and other minorities in central highlands such as; Kon Tum and Gia Lai provinces along the borders with Cambodia and Laos. It is the place where village ceremonies and festivals take place. There are many longhouses in Konklor Village, which across a suspension bridge in Kon Tum province. The longhouse is built raised off the ground on sturdy pillars and has an entrance but no windows. The towering thatch curved axe-blade shaped roof is quite a magnificent sight when approaching a village from afar. The house uses important meetings, secret ceremonies and tribal court, with cases decided upon by the village chief. Punishment is usually in the form of a public apology and giving a chicken or pig. Traditionally, the unmarried men would sleep there at night and developed skills on how to hunt, trap, and fight, but this practice has now faded.
