Omah dudur is a typical dwelling tribal of Java communities at Urut Sewu, Java Region, Purworejo, Central Java, Indonesia; which is located extending from the border of Yogyakarta-Purworejo of Central Java in the East to the district of Kebumen, Central Java in the West. In its habitat, omah dudur partakes the highest degree than the other two types of residential groups, i.e., Srotong and Limasan. The high degree of omah dudur is measuredby two things. First, to build omah dudur requires high cost. Second, omah dudurposseses transcendental value. Omah dudur has transcendental value which is represented in the form of karibawan (commanding) to bring salvation, adem ayem to bring happiness, and sandang pangan to provide enough food and clothing for the residents. The main transcendental value of omah dudur is revealed through manggon; which then becomes pepunden of the Queen of the South and Sunan Walisanga as the trustees of omah dudur and its inhabitants. Architecturally, transcendental value attached to omah dudur, forms a distinctive and authoritative spirits. To uncover the transcendental value of omad dudur the paradigm of phenomenology of Husserl (1965) coupled with naturalistic method of Lincoln and Guba (1985) were used. It is expected that the disclosure of omah dudur transcendental value will provide local wisdom of Javanese architecture.
