The ruins of an ancient village and a burial complex have been found in the Merangin Geopark in Jambi, Indoniesia.

Villagers said that according to stories handed down from generations, the ancestors had moved the location of the village twice, before settling in the current Air Batu village location, two kilometers from the boundary of the Merangin Geopark.
