welcome to king sidabutar's palace
looks like a kampung rite?? haha..

this village is a very unique one..their roofs are like our minangkabau houses..and they have really small doors..they kinda want public to respect them without a choice..u need to bow down to enter the king's palace..so respect respect already!!

this is a tomb..can u believe it?
their palace are so run down but the tomb is so modern..haha!!
