Lonely Planet review
Benteng Sungguminasa, a fort that was once the seat of the Sultan of Gowa, is 12km south of town centre at Sungguminasa. The former royal residence, now known as Museum Balla Lompoa, houses a collection of artefacts, including gifts from Australian Aborigines of Elcho Island, who have a history of trade with the Bugis. Although the royal regalia can be seen only on request, the wooden Bugis-style palace itself is the real attraction.
To go to Old Gowa and Sungguminasa, take a red pete-pete marked 'S Minasa' from Makassar Mall to the turn-off for the 1km walk to the tomb.
