There is a town where people reveal the dead bodies of their dead loved ones to celebrate them once in a year? Yes, you are shocked as I am.

Torajan Tribe is the ethnic group in the south Sulawesi region of Indonesia. This tribe has a peculiar and strange death culture. When they lost their loved one dies, they are kept in the family homes for days, weeks, months, and years until the funeral is given.

At the same time, they wait they still assume the person is still sleeping, they change their clothes, give them food, cigarettes and water daily, and swat the flies off their rooting skin, because they love and respect them so much.

This ritual is called “Ma” Nene” usually around August of every year.
