Buntu Pune is an ancient Toraja settlement built by Pong Maramba in 1880 and became the center of his government after becoming Parengnge ‘in Kesu’ and Tikala. There are 2 tongkonan (Toraja traditional house) and 6 alang (barns) lined up in front of them. In this ancient site, there are many ancient coffins whose edges are shaped like buffalo heads.
