Jakarta, IO – The beauty of Indonesia is not only in its stunning nature. Its unique and diverse culture also attracts domestic and foreign tourists.

According to, Thursday (9/3), one of the most remarkable traditions and culture can be found at the Amantubillah Palace in the Pedalaman village, East Mempawah, West Kalimantan.
