Palengkungan

  • temporary structure that serves as a place for keeping the symbolic image of a dead person (ukur) before it is carried to the burning ground for cremation. It consists of a roof made of hoops of split bamboo, on a flat base. When the ukur is placed inside, a white cloth, the rurub kajang is placed over it. The covered structure is then placed in a special temporary bale called pengorang (or in the case of nyekah, payadnyan). The ukur is removed from the pelengkungan when ready to be carried to the cemetery, and wrapped in the rurub kajang. The pelengkungan is not carried to the ceme- tery
