On top of this hill beside the telecommunication tower there is a well. The history of well is told (in indonesian languange) here. It is believed the well is connected to the history of ancient batak kingdom in Balige area which is known as Onan Bolon. Historically Onan Bolon is the trade centre for ancient batak kingdom.
