It takes about 5 minutes walk to this place from Tomok market, you can see a lots souvenir shop along the way before you reach this place. You have to wear Ulos which is provide by the staffs once you visit this tomb.

In the Tomok village laid the ancient tomb of King Sidabutar since 500 years ago. They believe there is a relationship between stone and life which is express through natural stone statues as well as a legend of Anting Malela's love story.
