Tumpek Landep : a sympathetic tradition in Bali

Once a year, Hindus in Bali are used to celebrate what we call here the Tumpek Landep.
Don’t try to guess what it is, it is just impossible !
The tradition is to  consider that all objects of the daily life made of iron including cars, motorcycles, engines, tools, etc.  is a gift from the Gods. As such, they must be celebrated in a specific ceremony called Tumpek Landep. All the objects of the hotel made of iron are gathered in a single place and blessed by the Priest while the staff prays and thanks the Gods for their benefactions.
On the picture, some of the cars of the hotel specially decorated on this occasion.
