The Dayak longhouse is a large communal dwelling, where an entire community of extended families resides. These longhouses, known as betang or lamin, are normally located along river banks. they are built on strong posts raised above the seasonal flooding. Such longhouses, therefore, are usually built on 5 meters to 8 meter posts. The entry to the house is by a tangka or ladder, notched into a huge log.  As the ladder is pretty precarious, visitors must be careful when climbing. Apart, this longhouse are decorated with beautiful wall deco panels.

The river is necessary for the community for the supply of water and food. As well as a means for travel, and communications with the outside world.  But today such longhouses are fast disappearing or falling into disuse as people prefer to live in smaller homes rather in one large longhouse. Therefore these wall deco panels are getting more rare to obtain.
