Traces of old Muslim Sultanates can be found in the old palaces that you can visit in the towns of Sumbawa Besar and Bima. Water buffalo races are held before rice is planted. Many large sarcophagi with the carved of human and crocodile can be found in Sumbawa Besar, 18 km from this area, you can see the Neolithic royal tomb aged about 2,000 years.
