The word Toraja comes from the Bugis language's 'to riaja', meaning "people of the uplands". Toraja land is located in South Sulawesi, Indonesia, populated by Toraja tribe who lives in high mountain. This is one of beautiful place in Indonesia that store magical power in Toraja Land culture. Characteristic of Toraja culture is art carvings that show religious and social concepts.
