Tana Toraja in highland South Sulawesi, Indonesia has been popular for its unique grave and the fabulous funeral ceremony (or party?), Rambu Solok. The Torajan consider death to be as important as life. That’s why, a funeral ceremony could worth much more than a wedding.
Unlike in any other parts of the world where usually a dead body is buried in a graveyard, Torajan people will put the corpse inside the cave or rock, even inside a tree for an infant.
Tana Toraja is also popular for its distinctive traditional a boat-shaped house, Tongkonan.
I was not quite lucky to witness the legendary Rambu Solok ceremony, but I have some pictures to show about Tana Toraja. Enjoy!
