Kalimaran Festival

Pesta Kalimaran is an annual cultural celebration of the Murut community. This festival celebrates the unique arts and culture of the Murut, the third largest indigenous group in Sabah. Legend has it that the local handicraft of the Murut tribe has ties to a solemn event of having to sacrifice a native girl named Ralaa, who sacrificed herself in exchange for a bountiful harvest for her brother’s padi field. Ralaa was known to be a great craftsperson using items such as bamboo and rattan.
