Yogyakarta Borobudur Tour: About Grebeg Sekaten Ceremony
Grebeg Sekaten was formerly an annual ceremony held by Hindus kings prior to the entry of Islam into Indonesia. This ceremony aimed to worship gods to request for protection and salvation.
In the early development of Islam in Java, the religious leaders saw Grebeg Sekaten tradition as a good thing to spread Islam through a cultural approach. Since then, the King of Yogyakarta Palace, Sri Sultan along with his people, has been continuously celebrating the tradition.
At the ceremony, the King will give alms to his people by distributing agricultural products such as fruits and vegetables that are arranged to resemble a mountain shape. They call it as Gunungan. Moreover, the Palace will usually prepare quite a lot of Gunungan. Escorted by the Palace soldier and accompanied by traditional music services, the Palace servants will then carry these Gunungan and walk through the Palace path to reach the Great Mosque of Yogyakarta.
Once arriving at the Great Mosque complex in Yogyakarta, the religious leader will pray for the prosperity and salvation of the Palace and people of Yogyakarta. After the prayer, the people will scramble for the Gunungan. They believe if they can get and bring home the Gunungan, they will receive blessings in health and prosperity.
In addition, the other good thing about Grebeg Sekaten is the night market that is available for one month prior to the ceremony. Not only may the visitors enjoy various local delicacies, they may also buy a ticket to try the outdoor games and attractions.
