Kampung Naga itself is located in Neglasari Salawu Tasikmalaya district is located exactly in between the highway that connects the area to Tasikmalaya and Garut are right in a lush valley traversed by a river called the river water Ciwulan eyed at Mount Of Cikuray Garut. Distance from Kampung Naga Tasikmalaya city to own approximately 30 km. to reach the Dragon village which the population is Muslim must go through a fairly steep terrain that had to descend the stairs to the river Ciwulan with a slope of about 45 degrees.

Kampung Naga: Community traditional
Kampung Naga which makes it unique is that residents of this village as unaffected by modernity and still uphold the tradition that has been passed down by their ancestors. Uniquely, because the area of ​​Kampung Naga is limited to not allow it again set up home in the village, many residents of Kampung Naga eventually spread to various parts of the region like to Ciamis and even Cirebon but people who no longer reside in Kampung Naga is nonetheless still uphold high cultural heritage of indigenous ancestors. If on a particular day will be held for example Kampung Naga customs and ceremonies sa-Dragon centered in Kampung Naga, the people who no longer live in this village will be taking the present for the sake of participating in the celebrations or ceremonies.

Ceremony of Kampung Naga
Kampung Naga ancestors alone is said to Kabupaten Singaparna whose tomb itself is located in a forest on the west of Kampung Naga. The tomb is considered sacred and is always visited by the descendants of Kampung Naga when they will carry out traditional ceremonies or the other. Compliance of Kampung Naga themselves with fixed visited the tomb of his ancestors this while keeping the traditional ceremonies, as well as their lifestyle is in keeping with the customs of his ancestors as in the case of religion and ritual, livelihoods, knowledge, art, language and come to life equipment ( household appliances, agricultural and transportations) and so on with the base because they are so respectful of the culture and manner of their ancestors. They remain steadfast in holding fast to the philosophy of life that their ancestors inherited from one generation to the next, while maintaining their distinct existence. Habits are deemed not from ancestors considered taboo to be implemented in everyday life. Violation of these provisions is considered as a violation of customs that may harm not only to the offender, but also for the entire Kampung Naga and for people sa-Naga.

The uniqueness of home Kampung Naga
Besides lifestyle and diet together they are no less unique of Kampung Naga is the structure of the building where they live. The uniqueness is reflected in the form of different building from the building in general, including the location, direction of the house until the ingredients that make up the house was all in harmony with nature and so typical. With a height contour of the land is different in each place, the houses in Kampung Naga made staircase steps follow ground contours. Rows of houses that is one higher than the other house by limiting sangked-sangked stones arranged in such a way to make up ground in spite of the building is not prone to landslides down and hit a house which is underneath. Around the village was lined with plants (bamboo) to form a living fence so beautiful.

Judging from the shape of it village, Kampung Naga population is very close kinship.

Furthermore, given the pattern of life and Kampung Naga leadership we will get alignment between the two leaders with their respective duties, namely the village government and community leaders or by residents of Kampung Naga called Kuncen. The role of both synergize with one another for the purpose of Kampung Naga harmony. Leadership pattern like this reminds me of the ulama leadership patterns and Umrah. The Kuncen (Keeper of tradition) that even so powerful in terms of customs when dealing with the village administration system should be obedient and submissive to RT or RK (leader of village), vice versa, Mr RT and Mr. RK also must obey the Kuncen when dealing with customs and spiritual life.
