A neat little town in Western Sumba, full
of old graves carved in motifs of buffalo- horns, man-heads, horses,
nude men or women symbolising social status or the wealth of the people.
Right in the capital city of Waikabubak, you can see the
following tombs: Kadung Tana, Watu Karagata, and Bulu Peka Mila. Tarung
village, an important ceremonial centre, is located on top of a hill,
just a half kilometre to the west of Waikabubak.
There are several megalithic tombs. The front of many
traditional houses are decorated with huge water buffalo horns from the
animals sacrificed during rituals of years gone by.
