The bizarre practice include digging up the graves of their deceased loved ones, washing them, grooming them and dressing them up in fancy new clothes before walking them around in the village once every three years.

The people of South Sulawesi went viral after digging up graves of their dead loved ones, dressed them up and welcome them back to the village of their origin.
They also repair or fix broken and damaged coffins.
They call the horrendous ritual of dolling up dead bodies 'Ma'nen or The Ceremony of Cleaning Corpses' and they practice it to honour the spirits of their ancestors.
From babies to OAPs, corpses are exhumed by the families and given proper baths, grooming session and new clothes. They are then walked in straight lines around the village and buried again.
