Rumah Warisan Jalan Masjid or Rumah Warisan Hajah Rapiah is located at Jalan Ajibah Abol. This house is believed to have been built in 1903. Hajah Rapiah Heritage House embodies the philosophy and values of the time and is a typical example of traditional Malay architecture. Made from precious belian wood, it has 16 windows with elaborate lattices to accommodate air ventilation to cool down the house in the hot tropical climate. The place is also known as a Quranic learning centre for young children around the villages at Jalan Ajibah Abol, in which the teacher, Haji Yaman, was brother to the namesake of the house, Hajah Rapiah.
