Pasemah Site, Prehistoric Relics in South Sumatra

At the Basemah Megalithic Site, there are two striking stones, namely a human-shaped stone with a bent body bent and its head facing forward and slightly looking up.

IPHEDIA - The Pasemah or Megalith Basemah site is located in Pasemah Plateau region, Bukit Barisan Mountains, Pagaralam, Lahat Regency, South Sumatra Province (South Sumatra).

A number of Dutch archeologists have tried to solve the mystery of the Pasemah Megalithic Site, such as EP Tombrink (1827), Ulmann (1850), LC Westernenk (1921), Th van der Hoop (1932) and others.

Megalithic sites are scattered in highlands, mountain peaks, slopes, and valleys, covering a vast area reaching 80 km ². The Tinggihari site, Tanjungsirih, Gunungkaya is a site located on a hill, while the Belumai, Tanjung Ara and Tegurwangi sites are sites located in valley.

At the Basemah Megalithic Site, there are two striking stones, namely a human-shaped stone with a bent body bent and its head facing forward and slightly looking up. Other stones are in the form of elephants, large stone statues, stone tools, pottery, stone cubes and menhirs.

The megalithic statues of Basemah also represent a mystical-agrarian civilized society with patriotic and cultivating patterns. The appearance of Basemah's megalithic cultural heritage displays advanced sculptures, and gives a sign that Basemah's megalithic culture has developed in the current of globalization (exchange) of culture.
