Mukim

 

Mukim

In Brunei, a mukim is a subdivision of a daerah (district). The equivalent of the word 'mukim' in English would be 'sub-district'.

In Malaysia, a mukim can either be a subdivision of a daerah (district) or a subdivision of sub-district, (Section 11(c) of the National Land Code 1965)

In Singapore, a mukim is one (along with town subdivisions) of two varieties of survey districts.

In Aceh, Indonesia, a mukim is subdivision of a subdistrict. A mukim contains some villages.

Brunei

Mukims of Brunei

There are 38 mukims in Brunei. Each mukim is an administrative area made up of several Kampung (Malay for "village"). A Mukim is headed by a Penghulu, which is an elected office. The number of mukims in each of the districts in Brunei is as follows:

District Number of Mukims
Belait 8
Brunei-Muara 17
Temburong 5
Tutong 8

The smallest mukim by area is Mukim Saba in the Brunei-Muara District. The largest mukim by area is Mukim Sukang in the Belait District. The last change in the mukim boundaries was in the late 1990s when Mukim Kumbang Pasang was merged into Mukim Kianggeh and Mukim Berakas was divided into Mukim Berakas A and Mukim Berakas B. The number of mukims remained at 38.

Singapore

Singapore's 34 mukim survey districts originally comprised the rural areas of Singapore. However, as development on the island has spread, many mukims (such as Tanglin) are now in areas that would be considered suburban or urban.
