These facts are still found directly in the field in the form of former Kamali relics or the Palace of Kings who had ruled in Liya in various locations / hamlets as there are in Bisitio, Kareke, Ewulaa, Laro Togo and Woru. It’s just that neither local government nor indigenous leaders are willing to nurture or raise or develop / rebuild the former King Liya Palace due to their lack of historical information in addition to the existence of certain communities that attempt to politicize the social culture within the royal palace of Liya.

Fortress of Liya

Fort Liya is one of the fortress complex owned by the Sultanate of Buton, one of the maritime kingdoms in Southeast Sulawesi, which triumphed in the 16th and 17th centuries. The fort is located on Wangi-Wangi Island, Wangi-Wangi Selatan District, Wakatobi Regency .

Chairman of the Great Family Counsil of Liya LM Ali Habiu: However, there is a version that believed the Fort Liya had existed long before the Sultanate of Buton existed. “Some historians of Buton say, Fort Liya was built around the 13th century by the first king Liya who is a descendant of Rajasa Kingdom in Kediri,” he said.
