Tamparuli is a small town and a sub-district of Tuaran on the west coast of Sabah, Malaysia. Based on a local folktale, the Tamparuli bridge was built by a British Engineer during the post-war colonial period. Many stories were told by the elders to generations who live in the villages of Tamparuli Town about the famous Tamparuli bridge.

The Tamparuli bridge legend tells a story about a beautiful young woman who fell in love and later on became a human sacrifice to appease the river spirits.
