Week 3 Kabuyutan Ciburuy and Seba Ritual


Kabuyutan Ciburuy and Seba Ritual

Kabuyutan Ciburuy is a heritage of Prabu Siliwangi (King of Pajajaran Kingdom) continued by his son, Prabu Kian Santang. Administratively, Kabuyutan Ciburuy located in the village Pamalayan, district Bayongbong, Garut. In the area of Kabuyutan Ciburuy, there are three traditional houses called Bumi Padaleman (storage of objects of ancient manuscripts, palm leaves and nipah), Bumi Patamon (storage place sharp objects such as daggers, kujeng trisula, and goong renteng), Lumbung Padi “Leuit” (storage of foodstuffs, especially rice), Pangsujudan place (the place for meditation and prostrate King Kian Santang), and Pangalihan (place for storing the fence). Every year, local people in Kabuyutan Ciburuy hold a ceremony called Seba Ritual on Muharram, the last Wednesday. Seba Ritual consists of several activities which are Babaktos (change the bamboo fence rounded the houses), cleaning the houses and Nyalikeun (clean the objects of heritage with flowering water and specific oil, while the older is spelling).
