Location: East Kalimantan, Indonesia
Description: Somewhere deep in the East Kalimantan forest, under a massive boulder lies an ancient grave site where early Lun Dayeh and Dayak tribes would lay their dead. The locals call it 'Batu Pembusukan Mayat'. After nature takes its course, the remaining bones are collected, washed and cleaned then finally laid to rest in another location not far from the boulder called, 'Batu Penyimpanan Tulang'. Ancient and undated human bone parts, broken pieces of porcelain and ceramic earthenware, beads and shell are still found among the rocks in this place. The locals strongly believe this sacred place is guarded by ancient spirits.
