Characteristic in Nagari Koto Anau in connection with the establishment of a gadang house is that the house must face to Mount Talang which symbolizes that Mount Talang is a place that is respected by the people of Koto Anau. This is related to the pre-Islamic community’s belief that the peak of the mountain is the place where the gods reside, as Mount Merapi is highly respected by the people of Luhak Tanah Datar.
