The two graves, side-by-side.

Indonesians often frequent graves of famous people and offer sacrifices to the spirits of the deceased that are believed to reside there. We have written about a number of these sacred graves, and those posts can be accessed via the category on the right side of our blog titled: Graves; Sacred & Historical.

Many of these graves have legends associated with them, and with the passing of time the legends get more and more interesting as succeeding generations embellish them with their additions.
