Sangalla is a village, which is located on a hilly valley. It lies among the leafy bamboo trees. Here you can find an interesting tourism object, which is a special cemetery for young babies. More than that, the cemetery of King Sangalla can be found at one of the slopes of the hills in this village, which is named Suaya.
These graves are carved on the hillsides. They are the resting-places of the seven kings and their families of Sangalla kingdom. “Tau-Tau” of the kings and their families are placed in front of the stone graves. They are dressed traditionally in accordance with the dress of Toraja Kings. Not far away from this place, you can find a 'Tongkonan House' that was built by the Sangalla King, which nowadays is known as “Museum Buntu Kalando”. Even though, the model of this museum is quite new, in it you can find several past kingdoms properties and some house equipments, which formerly were the belongings of King Sangalla (Puang Sangalla).
