North Sumatra Nias Traditional Houses

Hiliamaitah-01-800

The town of Hiliamai’tah.

This is the town of Hiliamai’tah, a traditional town on Nias Island. You can’t find a lot of these villages nowadays on Nias, and when you do, they always have something in common: Al these houses are build facing the “Ihri”, that’s the straight line you can see in the middle of this picture. It symbolises life. Al these (often traditional) houses have very beautiful front sides (the ones facing the Ihri), while they’re back sides are very poorly build.
