The Sunken Graves
The residents of Tampasak sacrificed their village for the benefit of the people of Kota Kinabalu. Tampasak was home to indigenous people, and fulfilled their daily needs with the availability of natural resources. It had also been supplied with basic amenities by the government. Tampasak has now been flooded due to the construction of a dam. Although the villagers protested against the building of the dam, eventually they were forced to comply with the order to relocate to a new area by the State government, who promised them compensation. To this day, the sacrifice of the villagers has not been compensated by those responsible.
