After I strayed, went home, strayed and back again, asking local residents …, then finally I met TGK grave complex. HJ FAKINAH untouched by signpost / cultural preservation sign. If you follow Google Maps, you will be taken to the wilderness at the end of the hill, far from the actual location. (And I am sorry, I forgot to mark the correct point.)
Teungku Fakinah is a female cleric, also a pioneer of Islamic school for women (1911). Now, the name is the Hajjah Fakinah Islamic Education Foundation.
Of course, like most women of that era (late 1800s) in Aceh, Teungku Fakinah was diligent in war and also a commander, built fortresses, went in and out of the forest, gathered women’s groups, etc. She was a friend of Cut Nyak Dien, while criticizing her when Teuku Umar had a strategy to embrace the Netherlands.
