Toraja Beautiful Tribe and Scenery

Tana T60181_440547297870_6114907_noraja or Toraja Land, South  Sulawesi is the third most popular destination in Indonesia after Bali and Java. Located 328KM north of Makassar and known for its unique culture and ancient traditions. The Sulawesi island it self offers great variety ofexotic cult
ure, natural wonders and friendly people.

It is another unspoiled paradise of Indonesia. A journey to the odd world of  Mysterious Toraja people is truly a rare adventure, made specially eerie by their haunting tombs, holes carved out of sheer rock faces guarded by wooden effigies that stare out across the jungle.

The main reason that Tana Toraja is gaining popularity as tourist destination among all the travelers is because of the unique culture, the beautiful panorama, cool climate and friendly people. For many travelers, Tana Toraja or Toraja Land will be always in their mind as a land full with mystery, magic and ancient traditions. It
is one of the world’s rare cultural treasures.

In Toraja society, death rituals (funerals) are more important than life rituals (births and marriages). So the funeral ritual is a more elaborate and expensive event than even a marriage. The richer and more powerful the individual, the more expensive the funeral. And in this animism belief system, only nobles have the inherent right to have an extensive death feast (which can include the ritual slaughter of many buffaloes).

Various types of graves are located in Cliff-side caves, mountain ledges or in special houses reserved for the dead. The graves in Tana Toraja are made in huge rocks because of their strength and relative safety from animals and thieves. There are many of these graves in the different mountains. And some are well guarded by life-size wooden statues of the persons buried.
