After visiting the Batak Museum, we took a short ride to Tomok village to view the Tombs of the Batak Kings. We parked at a private parking space on the main road which was lined with shops and took a 10min walk. Its a walk up slope from the main road market street to get here. From the tomb designs you could appreciate the evolution of the culture up to modern age and also how the Christian faith weaved into their culture. Very interesting. He were also giving a brief demonstration of a traditional dance which we participated in and our kids had a good laugh. There is also a Batak traditional house that is set up as a museum that houses traditional clothing and tools to better appreciate the Batak culture. The whole visit was about slightly under an hour.

To enter the area of the burial place of former kings you are given a local sash (not sure of the name) to wear. There are seats under a cover where you can relax and then one of the locals on duty will explain all about the former kings. There is a donation box when you leave. We found it very interesting learning the history and i guess the lecture lasted about 15 minutes.

At the entrance you get a offer of a local guide to get the story of the king for 50k - great. But his English or speaking abilities are very limited, we tried to ask again what he tried to say, but there was not any effort to be understood, he basicly mumbled the story and that was it - so you just get to see a tomb where you get no info about... You pay 5k to borrow a scq arf over your shoulder - we didn't get the info why....

It’s bigger with more tombs. Other than that, almost similar to other tombs. Before we go into the tomb, we have to wear a piece of cloth “Ulas” on our shoulder as the show respect to the king.

We had to walk up a slope to reach this place. It is not difficult as the path is shaded with rows of small souvenir shops on the left and right of the path. The tomb area is small. Our Indonesian guide explained the significance of the Kings and related some stories about the rulers. Without the guide, we will not know much.
