text: After crossing an old-type ditch which used to be part of the fortifications of Tang, we came to a morung, set high with stone steps flanked by upright stones leading up to a platform. The morung has a closed front and some carvings inside. The morung is clearly still used. From its platform one overlooks part of the village as far as the enormous long Ang's house with twenty posts sticking out of the roof.
