Mukah Kaul Festival 2009 - Part I
Nowadays, Kaul is celebrated more as a social and cultural event. The main events are held at the beach which is a few km from Mukah town. As with most celebrations in Malaysia nowadays, a bazaar is an important part of the event.
The Mukah Beach is sadly littered with debris from the nearby rivers. Otherwise this would have been a perfect setting for the Festival.
The Melanaus create beautiful decorations out of atap (tatch) and straw for the festival, and these can be seen everywhere at the bazaar.
