The hill is also called Punden Berundak (similar to buildings arranged in the form of a castle that leads to a point with each terrace higher in position) which consists of 4 levels (almost the same as the castle in Europe.) The fourth level is a megalithic heritage warehouse, which represents a portrait of Batak life in the past.
