Chairman of Parisada Hindu Dharma Indonesia Manado City Ida Bagus Ketut Alit explains, Tawur means to pay or return.

“Because it’s been a year we take the produce of the earth, now we did this ritual to restore for this nature in order to its sustainable,” he said.

The Ogoh-ogoh Festival Parade is supported by the Interfaith Religious Cooperation Agency, Kabasaran Dance, Barongsai, Drum Band, Bamboo Music, and the last is Ogoh-ogoh by Beleganjur Art and Tari Tabuh Wijaya Kusumah.

He added, ogoh-ogoh is a puppet or a variety of statues that symbolize the negative elements, bad traits, and evils that exist around human life.

The doll was once made of a bamboo frame covered with paper. Over time, most ogoh-ogoh are made with Styrofoam basic ingredients for finer three-dimensional shapes.

They prepared ogoh-ogoh is weeks before Nyepi. Ogoh-ogoh has various style, depending on the size, type of material, designer, and the complexity of the ogoh-ogoh design.

Uniquely the two ogoh-ogoh who were paraded given the writing Stop Corruption … !!! Corruption…? Bikin Malu Aja and Brenti Jo Bagate ...! No Drugs … !!!.

According to Ida, that letter is only to invite the people to do not corruption, drunk, and must eliminate the bad traits of human beings.
