The compang  is the center of traditional ceremonies and rituals, e.g. for sacrificial offerings. An impressive waringin tree (Ficus Benjamina), locally known as a ‘ruteng’, once grew in the center of the compang.  It is now replaced by a dadap tree. On the east side of the compang, there are two tall traditional houses with spiked roofs.

 

Facilities

Ruteng, which is situated only 4km from Ruteng Pu’u, offers some low-budget accommodation and restaurants.
