Toraja Village, Indonesia

Dear Sekar sent me this view of a traditional Toraja village in south Sulawesi/Celebes - thank you :)
Tana Toraja Traditional Settlement is a series of 10 traditional settlements or constituents of them, such as burial or ceremonial grounds. The properties are scattered within Tana Toraja Regency in the Province of South Sulawesi, Indonesia. (tentative Unesco WHS)
Torajans are renowned for their elaborate funeral rites and the colorful wood carvings. Toraja funeral rites are important social events, usually attended by hundreds of people and lasting for several days. One must love the diversities of our planet..!
