Legend says that this 4 m tall megalith is about 500 years old. It symbolised some kind of a royal at that time, others said it is – as the word Palindo itself means – the entertainer. But until now, people are still guessing and archeologists are still studying about its existence. Located in Bada Valley, a part of Lore Lindu National Park, Central Sulawesi, we were two of the few people in the world who have seen this Palindo monolith directly. Even most Indonesians haven’t even heard about it.
