Hanging Coffins

The hanging coffins are high on the cliffs - remnants of the Ba Kingdom, an ancient people who settled in the region more than 4,000 years ago. It is an ancient funeral custom of the Ba people to bury the dead in coffins in caves high on the cliff. It is beleived that this could prevent bodies from being taken by animals and that the soul would be blessed eternally.
