In Pictures: The Yadnya Kasada Festival in Indonesia
During the annual Yadnya Kasada Festival, Tengger people present offerings of fruit, vegetables, livestock, flowers or rice by throwing them into the crater of Mount Bromo. These offerings are given to seek the blessings from the deity of Mount Bromo, Hyang Widi Wasa and Mahadeva, the God of the mountain. The festival's origins are believed to have begun during the Majapahit kingdom.
