Devotion to Motherland in Yogyakarta

Several horse riders wearing traditional Javanese costumes were seen along Parangtritis Beach in Bantul regency, Yogyakarta. These riders were tasked with paving the way for the Labuhan Pisungsung Jaladri parade from Parangtritis Beach to nearby Parangkusumo Beach.

Pisungsung Jaladri means being devoted to the motherland, and it is conducted by floating offerings out to sea. It is also a way to express gratitude to God for all the blessings within the year.

Villagers grab some of the offerings being floated out to sea, believing they would be blessed and spared from bad deeds.
