Kampung Luar Batang is a modern-traditional urban settlement occupied by a heterogeneous community with hybrid culture, at the proximity of an urban pilgrimage center – a maqom (sacred tomb). By employing phenomenological research methodology, this study has been able to understand how the religious, traditional and economic activities Kampung have simultaneously generated the phenomenon of changes in the articulation of space in cyclical patterns (annually, weekly, and daily). Social exchange based on religious-tradition has generated fluid, elastic, and changeable spatial characteristics. This paper is intended to describe the underlying reasons of these phenomena and to generate a model for these interesting cyclical changes of space.
