The village meeting house ("bai") is the most representative building of Palauan architecture. Each “bai” is built from the finest hardwoods and features ornate carvings that depict island legends and mythology. Before modern times, a village’s daily life centered around its bai. Today, use of the bai generally is reserved for special occasions.
The "Bai er a Ngesechel a Cherechar" is one of the best examples of the traditional bai structure.
Originally built in 1969, it later caught fire in 1978. In 1991, a replica was built using traditional material and construction techniques.
