These are one of the most unusual and interesting sight of the Four Day Toraja Tour as the tombs are located in hollowed out cave high in the cliffs that overlook the sea. To be left in these tombs is a great honor where your soul will be able to move from the cliffs protected and guided by the statues that stand at the mouth of the cave. There are complex reasons behind this as the soul will not leave the body unless it is away from the home and if buried the soul will be trapped so the dead are placed in stone tombs or in a hanging grave.
