The temple anniversary was preceded by a journey to request holy water from three different sacred places, Widodaren spring on the slope of mount widodaren , Madakaripura Waterfall, and Watu Plosot at Mount Semeru. The holy water is essential part of the ceremony since it is used to purify the temple and the offerings that are presented by the Tengger Hindus on the day of Temple anniversary.
