Hanging Coffins of Philippines

Culture is one of the important factors shaping societies. Each culture creates its traditions through its experiences over the centuries. Since ancient times, it has been known that turning points such as birth, marriage and death are the core of many worship and belief teachings. One of the most important transitions in human life is funerals. But sometimes these traditions become so strange and foreign to another culture that you will be amazed at what you hear. In some parts of the world, there are certain traditions that have been practiced for generations, which may seem strange to the nature of other nations in the intellectual world. Even today in India, women are still burned alive with their dead husbands, even though they are not legal. One such interesting tradition is the funeral of the Filipino Sagada people and the mysterious Bo people who once lived in China. Instead of burying the funerals in the ground, these two people put them in handmade wooden coffins and hang them on the steep rocks. Although it is not known exactly where and how this tradition is coming, there are various assumptions about its origin. It is thought that they will be closer to the genesis of the highs. It is thought that such an application is going to be carried out in order to prevent corpses from being damaged by wild animals, earthquakes or floods.
