Simalungun Royal Palace is located in the province North Sumatra, in a place called Pematang Purba. Guess what Simalungun is a palace, at first glance it is very, very difficult, especially if not know about such a high status of the building in advance. Before the average Russian tourist Simalungun appears as a kind of hut on chicken legs: walls and the floor of hewn poles rests on a set of carved"supports", a gable roof covered with straw, and the front of the ridge is crowned with a frightening-looking figurine with horns. This is what the palace of the king of Bataks looks like - the once formidable a Sumatran tribe rumored to have been a cannibalist in the early stages its development.
His Majesty's house is different from the nearby houses subjects only in size and skillful carving, otherwise the monarch's dwelling is also practical: the space under the support legs served as a cattle shed, inside palace the same utensils and household items. The list of Batak kings beginning with Tuan Pangultor Ulthor, who ruled from 1634 to 1946 year, and ending with the glorious Tuan Mogang, who is said to be emigrated in his old age to Belgium and which not far from the palace even erected a small monument.
