Sirisori Islam

sirisori.jpgOne of the two remaining Muslim villages on Saparua, Sirisori Islam is clearly visible from Kota Saparua just across the bay, down the southeastern peninsula.
It remains a stronghold of local traditions, and here you can still hear the native Saparuan language that is no longer spoken in the Christian villages.
Check if their long korakora canoe is in its shed – they won several races with it.
The local Raja’s colonial-style home is also worth a look.
