Royal Cemetery of Banggae Hadat Kings - Majene

Royal Cemetery of Banggae Kings and Hadat is located on the Ondongan Hill overlooking the beautiful Bay of Majene, West Sulawesi. This is the cemetery of the ancestors from Mandar ethnic group in the Banggae Kingdom of Majene.

Located within Pang Ali-ali Village, Banggae sub district, Majene Regency,in the province of West Sulawesi, this where the ancestors of the ancient Banggae Kingdom of Majene found their final resting place. Many suggest that the hilltop location was chosen with a reason so that these ancestors can watch over their descendents below and when they sail away to make their living in the open seas.

Although there are still no historical or archeological research conducted within the complex, it is estimated that the royal burial site dates as far back to the 16th and 17th century. The scarce historical accounts have also left a mystery as to who the many tombs at the complex belong.

The burial site is situated about 2.5Km away from downtown Majene. From Mamuju, the capital of West Sulawesi, you can go straight to Majene via the inter-city roads which will take approximately 3.5 hours’ drive and then turn right in the direction of Ondongan Hill.
