Sabah Hakka Complex (Chinese: 沙巴客家情结; Malay: Kompleks Hakka Sabah) is a five-storey building complex with an event hall located at 26, Signal Hill Road, Tanjung Lipat, Likas of Kota Kinabalu, Sabah, Malaysia. The complex is built as a recognition from the Sabah government to local Hakka Chinese contribution to the economy of Sabah since their early migration with the main building structure is designed after the world-famous traditional Hakka houses in Fujian of China, the Tulao.[1][3][4]

Features

The complex features two main buildings of Wisma Hakka and Dewan Hakka (Hakka Hall). The hall became the centre for the inaugural Hakka International Creativity Forum 2015.[1][4] In 2019, the Manchester United Malaysia fan club's fourth annual dinner was held in the hall with the invitation of United legend footballer Ronny Johnsen.[5]
