A bungbung is made from bamboo. The top and the base are both cut below a node in the bamboo. The purpose of this is to make a vessel for storing the holy water that is requested at a temple. Similarly, there is a cover which prevents the holy water from spilling out. The bungbung is decorated with leaves at the top and wrapped in yellow and white cloth.
