The Manggarai are an ethnic group inhabiting western Flores. Ruteng - a small town - is the capital of Manggarai Regency
The traditional village of Puu, located 4km from Ruteng, is one of the most popular places to see the traditional compang, a round, stone platform surrounded by a circle of stones and traditional houses. The compang is the center of traditional ceremonies and rituals, e.g. for sacrificial offerings.
