 The cross monument

This Cross Monument was built in 2012 with a height of 30 m and a width of 12 m. The idea of building a religious object was sparked in 1973, but it only began construction in early 2012 and was formalized in December 2012.

This cross became a symbol of 100 years of the entry of the gospel into Toraja. The year 2013 coincides with the 1st century (1913-2013) the entry of the gospel into Toraja.
