      I didn’t know about this traditional ritual in Indonesia. As commented at this site ( This is an unusual manner. This is kinda dangerous especially there are many people. There might be people stampede. What is the purpose of throwing water to the couple kissing and hugging? I want to witness this in person. What is the nearest hotel in Banjar Kaja, Sesetan?
