Pots tird to a Peeple tree

The pots called ghants are tied to this sacred Peeple tree in honour of the soul of the recently deceased. In the morning a little water is poured into the pot while in the evening both water and a small oil lamp is placed inside. This ritual lasts for ten days from the morning after the body is cremated. In the picture a man places a small oil lamp inside a pot in memory of his wife.
