  • It's a small compound of the ancient houses and stones tables of the early Batak tribe (the tables where the King discussed tribunal matters and the execution stone tables where they tortured and killed enemies or felons - part of the cannibalism culture). Well... The stones are stones, with no descriptions of any sort around (it's not really an organised place). There's an area which looks like they hold performances for tourists but there's no info on when and how it is done (so i didn't get to see any). To be fair, it is an interesting piece of history but it's a rather underdeveloped site for tourism with no information provided on-site. Do your research of the historical significance before coming to understand what it is or get a local guide. There's an old lady guarding the compound and charges a small fee (ranging 3K to 5K; she's flexible about it).
  • Not a whole lot too see...chairs are chairs? The lady may ask 3000 rupees as you enter but that seemed hit and miss as to whether she's there or not. Not a must see but can't fault the place...just lacking excitement really
  • Not only does this site keep the megalithic heritage of Toba and its early people, it also post a comprehensive map for tourists summarizing the geological history of the place - plus beautiful traditional houses.
  • This place you should to visit if you come to samosir. You can see the batak house, museum, stone chair, si gale gale doll, and local seller souvenier from batak
  • Old, not organised, mostly closed, one room open but display bad with dust everywhere. Dance performance looks like they were forced, dirty place. Don't west your time.
