When traveling in the area, I saw a tall tower. I heard that it was the replica of Moraya fortress which was the battle ground between Dutch colonial troops and the Minahasan people in early 1800s. It was a sad story because during the war, a lot of people were killed including women and children.

Until now, farmlands around Lake Tondano still produce rice but local people have run other businesses too such as running eating houses, and shops.
