Londa Cave, Work of Art in Nature

noe2

One of the amazing work of art I have ever met is Londa Cave. Located in Toraja, South Sulawesi Province, Indonesia.

Londa is a masterpiece of God, a cave with stalactites and stalagmites, and the notches in the wall of the cave which formed naturally.

A Few About Londa Cave

It was a cave that is used as a natural cemetery by the Toraja tribe since hundreds of years ago. No wonder if there were so many coffins (erong) have rotted and the bones were scattered everywhere. Every dead person will be preserved first, and then stored in a coffin, and buried in this cave. And before the burial, will be held a traditional ceremony caled rambusolok.
