In the name of God, the Most Loving, the Most Merciful
Fancy getting married oriental way? Why not take a look at Borneo Sarawak bridal dress.

Gajaholen or Rajaoleng is a traditional wedding costume which is very popular as the bersanding ceremony for Sarawak Malay bride  especially in Kuching Division, Samarahan and  Sri Aman in Malaysia (Borneo).

Although the crown is said to be influenced by Javanese, Palembang Malay and Chinese style, the dress is definitely local. 

The four-layer headgear is made from gold-silver known as Kepih Forehead, Kepih Sanggul, Sisir, flowers and Sticks Sanggul Berjuntai. It is arranged neatly and elevated above the head.
