We made our way here as one of the first visits on Samosir island. We came here mainly mto visit the Batak Museum. This place also houses one of the Batak tribe's king's tomb. Its a good location to view and understand Batak architecture and culture. There are Batak houses to visit to understand how the structures are build and there are old stone carvings.

If you’re visiting to view the stone chairs then expect literally stone chairs. The houses surrounding the stone chairs were impressive and the local handicraft was beautiful so if you have an hour or two to spare then definitely visit but if you’re visiting with high expectations then definitely lower those expectations!

The place gives info about the village life and the king.... Guide 50k/person. If you want to learn sth get him. We got lucky, our was man who lives in the first house from the office - he is funny, full of information and interesting stories, not only facts. Very recommended. After that you are forced to go through gift shop - difficult experience as always...

It’s definitely worth seeing if you’re on Samosir island. You can enter a traditional Batak house, you see the ritual sacrifice place and tools (people there used to be cannibals). As in many places in Indonesia at the end you walk through a passage full of souvenir shops, but it’s just a few of them. Worth doing as a part of bike riding adventure on Samosir island. The entry fee is low (20 or 10k, not sure), the guide offered his services for 100k (I decided to skip as it sounded pricey for a small place like this)
