Palawa’

Another traditional village is Palawa’, a compound of traditional houses and granaries. In total there are 11 tongkonan and 15 granaries. Like many Toraja compounds, the Palawa’ houses and granaries are arranged in two parallel rows aligned east-west direction. The houses face north, while the granaries face south. The entrance is situated in the western side of the compound. The ceremonial ground lies about 350 meters to the east. Entry fee: 20,000 rp!

How to get there?

Jump on a Bolu-Sa’dan pete-pete and ask the driver to drop you off at the burial site (ask “kiri decat di Palawa’”). It is located next to the main road.

    Hello Bonga Toraja..
    Thanks for sharing. It’s very useful.
    But I can’t find details info about Sa’dan weaving village.
    Might be a good one to add.

    Cheers,
