Tengger residents and community leaders carry offerings to the Sendang Widodaren spring in the tourism park.

Taking cues from the tale of the goddess Dewi Mudrim, the Tengger people faithfully hold the Grebeg Tengger Tirto Aji customary procession as a form of respect towards nature. As locals protect nature, water springs in Tengger continue to flow and sustain people’s lives.

The early dry season sunshine on April 12 was quite intense. Under a copse of trees, seven female dancers, symbolizing seven angels, approached Malang Deputy Regent M Sanusi who was standing near the Widodaren water spring inside the Wendit Tourism Park in Mangliawan village, Pakis district, Malang regency, East Java.
