To this day, the Toraja traditionally live in small settlements perched on hilltops & surrounded by stone walls. Each village is composed of several extended families which inhabit a series of houses called Tongkonan, arranged in a circular row around an open field. In the middle stands a sacred stone or Banyan tree used for ritual offerings, and granaries (lumbung) face the dwellings. ...
These Tongkonan houses are quite amazing.
