The religion of Toraja
Toraja – is a Christian island in the predominantly Muslim province of South Sulawesi. It happened mainly due to the isolation of the mountain region.
The trade routes did not pass through it and Islam, which was spreading in Indonesia, largely due to the trade contacts with the Arabs and Indians, was not accepted in Toraja.
In the 17th century the territory involved in maritime trade, and neighboring with Toraja began to convert to Islam. But Tana Toraja was remaining pagan until to the early 20th century.
