Tana Toraja rock graves in Sulawesi, Indonesia


In 1998 I did travel to Rantapao in Sulawesi (Indonesia) to visit the Tana Toraja where the people are known for their unique culture and ancient traditions.  One of that ancient traditions is the way they bury their deaths .... in caves or in man-made caves in the rocks. And sometimes even in "hanging coffins" along the rocks. Following (click read more) are some more photos of what are called "rock graves".
