Ruteng Pu’u Village


Another name for Compang Ruteng, Ruteng Pu’u, is the site closest to the city representing the Manggaraian architectural building in a small village which consists of two thatched roof drum houses (Mbaru Niang) with a large yard and oval shapedstones called compang. Along with other houses, the   mbaru niang sit side by side in a circular pattern. In the local language, Ruteng means fig tree and presumably the village’s name comes from the numerous fig trees nearby.
How to get there: the village is just around ± 4km in the western part of the city, a 10-15 minutes drive both by public transport or motorbike taxi.
