To the Amantubillah Palace

Amantubillah Palace was once led by a king named Opu Daeng Menambon who came from the Luwu Sultanate, Bugis, South Sulawesi. He also played an important role in the spread of Islam in Mempawah. Visiting his tomb is one of the main agenda at the Robo-Robo festival.

The Tomb of Putroe Neng

Putroe Neng’s tomb, whose real name is Nian Nio Lian Khi, located on the edge of a large road between provinces, Lhokseumawe area. The tomb key interpreter (Qamariyah the granny, who replaced her husband who died in 2015) tells the story that in the past visitors took a picture in this tomb, often with the figure of an astral woman suspected of the incarnation of Putroe Neng. This photo story is quite popular, but when I search and ask questions, no one has saved the printed photo.
