Wikipedia: Despite contact with western cultures, Sumba is one of the few places in the world in which megalithic burials, are used as a living tradition to inter prominent individuals when they die.
Burial in megaliths is a practice that was used in many parts of the world during the Neolithic and Bronze Ages, but has survived to this day in Sumba, and has raised significant interest from scholars.
