The Tana Toraja rock graves in Sulawesi, Indonesia

Traveling in Indonesia

In 1998 we did travel in Indonesia. In my serie about cemeteries here some photos of the Tana Toraja rock graves in Sulawesi, Indonesia. We 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 are more photos of what are called "rock graves".

The journey of Traveling 2 Thailand did begin with One Night in Bangkok in 1985 and since 2009 it became a personal non-commercial travel blog as inspiration for traveling & motorbike riding in Thailand. Made just for the sheer love of traveling and sharing experience about traveling in South-East Asia. To travel beyond the beaten track & highlights. Enjoy!
