History of the kingdoms in Tanah Toraja
Puang Tamboro Langi was the founder and also the first king of Kalindobulanan Lepongan Bulan (Tana Toraja). According to the saga, he descended from the sky at the peak of Mount Kandora in District Mengkendek, Tana Toraja in the mid-4th century AD
Puang Tamboro Langi was the first king of Kalindobulanan Lepongan Bulan and the ancestor of kings in the Kingdom of Lepongan Bulan (Tana Toraja) in particular and the first Tallu Bocco Kingdom (Toraja, Luwu and Gowa) in general.
Puang Tomatasak XIV in Kalindobulanan Lepongan Bulan is the last king.
After the three grandchildren of Bullu Matua have grown up, he divided the Kingdom Lepongan Bulan into three Kingdoms on an oath foundation called Basse Tallu Lembangna, namely Makale, Sangalla ‘and Mengkendek. This division was performed on an oath base called Basse Tallu Lembangna.
Although these three kingdoms were in full control and governed their respective territories, called Puang Basse Kakanna Makale, Puang basse Tanganna Sangalla’ dan Puang Basse Adinna Mengkendek, however symbolically there was still Tomatasak Kalindobulanan Puang Lepongan Bulan which historically had always been held by Puang Basse Tanganna Sangalla ‘for 13 periods ranging from Puang Palodang to Puang Laso’Rinding (Puang Sangalla’). One of the reasons was, because Tongkonan Layuk Kaero was the centre (Keraton) Lepongan Bulan which was built by Puang Patta La Bantan in Sangalla ‘area.
Also in Tana Toraja: The Buntu Pune settlement was first built in 1880 by Siambe ‘Pong Maramba’, one of the leaders or nobles.
