Visited this place during our 2 day tour in Toraja. The graves (both modern and very old hanging graves and a cave) some with the puppits, are very great and impressive to see. Only minus is it's very touristic with a lot of souvenir shops

A must visit place for tourist to see the culture of toraja. You can see traditional ancrestal houses called Tongkonan. There are also graves located in the cave but you cannot enter because it’s locked. Only cost IDR 15.000, worth the place.
