Formerly known as Lutuk Kebo Kerong or Lutuk Kuang Rea, Lenang Indah was once a cattle farm for buffaloes, horses and cows. Due to the popularity of Indian movies among the people of Lantung, residents later changed the name to Lenang India because it resembles the typical location for dancing-and-singing scenes often seen in Bollywood films.
The destination is set to host the Kampung Syahdu Festival in September as part of the Samawa Cultural Festival in Lantung slated for Sept. 24 to 27. (kes)
