Batu Batikam, Batu Sangkar, Sumatra

Batu Batikam, Duson Tuo (Nagari Limo Kaum), Batu Sangkar, Sumatra. According to historical legend, the stone was trusted with a 'keris' to end the dispute on 'adat' problems. It was trusted into the stone by Datuk Parpatih Nan Sabatang who settled with Datuk Katumanggunan regarding 'adat'. The Batu Batikam can be found next to the busy main road - to Batu Sangkar, from Bukit Tinggi.
