They are much obsessed with death. Their rituals includes burial sites carved into ragged cliffs, the traditional tongokonan houses which are always decorated with the horns of buffalos(it signifies wealth and used exclusively as resting places for the corpses of recently deceased people).

But this process don’t take place immediately after death. The tradition is preceded by a very grand ceremony.

While the poor keep the body in another room of their houses, it takes place rather extravagantly between rich folks. It requires the presence of all the relatives. The body of the deceased is entombed within a coffin placed within burial caves, carved into limestone cliffs.

It takes weeks or even months to carve out such a shape. Therefore the final burial happens after a big gap.

If the deceased was rich, the ceremony will definitely be extravagant, the feast lasting up to a few days. So the party depends on the amount of wealth the deceased had enjoyed in his lifetime.

When finally the corpse becomes ready for burial, it is placed within a wooden box, and instead of burring it in the ground, they keep them in a special burial cave carved out for the same.

In the case of babies or small children it will be hung from a cliff with thick ropes until the ropes rot and the coffin falls to the ground, after which it will be reattached.
