More photos of the Londa Cave burial site.

It is a natural cave that has been used for burials for centuries by the local Toraja people. The cave is located in a limestone cliff face and is accessed through a narrow entrance that leads into a large chamber.

Inside the cave, there are several wooden coffins and sarcophagi placed on shelves or hung from the cave walls. These coffins are decorated with carvings and colorful textiles. It is believed that the placement of the coffins in the cave helps to protect the spirits of the deceased and allows them to be closer to the natural world.
