History of the kingdom

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 ‘is 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 Moon was the last king.

After the three grandchildren of Bullu Matua had grown up, he divided the Kingdom of Lepongan Bulan into three Kingdoms on an oath foundation called Basse Tallu Lembangna, namely Makale, Sangalla ‘and Mengkendek.

Although these three kingdoms were in full control and governed their respective territories called Puang Basse Kakanna Makale, Puang Basse Tanganna Sangalla’ and Puang Basse Adinna Mengkendek, however symbolically there was still Tomatasak Kalindobulanan Puang Lepongan Bulan, who historically always had been held by Puang Basse Tanganna Sangalla ‘for 13 periods ranging from Puang Palodang to Puang Laso’Rinding (Puang Sangalla’). One of the reasons is because Tongkonan Layuk Kaero which is the Central (Keraton / Istana) Lepongan Moon built by Puang Patta La Bantan is in Sangalla ‘area.
