Danau Toba Things to Do: 61 reviews and 206 photos
On Samosir island or on the mainland around lake Toba, when you wander around, travel by feet or bike, it is impossible you don?t come across some small monuments or shrines; they are built in the same style as the traditional houses, sometimes on small hills, far from villages, or close to them, next to tombs or totally isolated. . . . . All these shrines have certainly a signification, but I had no guide and people did not know (or made as if. . . ) about explaining these shrines. Most of them are recent, they have been erected for the ancestors, are for individuals or for communities. These shrines very nicely decorate the countryside of Samosir, and some are also in villages.
Directions: Everywhere in the Batak Toba countryside
