Toraja Architecture


Charuhas Images


Photograph - Photography


The most striking feature, perhaps, of Toraja is its houses. As you fly over Toraja, coming in via the South, you will see the small villages scattered in between the mountains covered with bamboo and veiled in mist. Most houses have the typical boat-shaped roofs, which, nowadays, are predominantly made of iron.
The roofs used to be made of bamboo and other natural materials. The making of such a house was very laborious. The houses that you will see in villages such as Ke’te’ Kesu’ (near Rantepao) are the so-called tongkonan (from the Toraja word tongkon, which means ‘to sit down’). These kindred houses are used for family purposes, and the construction involves the entire family clan.
