Malim Kundang






The photos are self explanatory. These shots were taken by my sister in law in Padang, Sumatera Barat Indonesia (menghadap lautan Hindi) 2 yrs ago. It was supposed to be the site of the tragedy of Malim Kundang. The mural are supposed to be the life story of this Malim Kundang character, from his birth, childhood, the departure (with the blessing of his mother), his marriage to a royalty/noble family, his ignorance of his mother's pleas and the prayer by the mother which turned, not only Malim Kundang, but his entire fleet of vessels into stone.

As this Blog, unfortunately only allow me to post 5 photos, per update, the photo of what is believed by the locals to be Malim Kundang will be posted in the next installment.
