Legacies are brought one by one by the adolescent male relatives of Gowa Kingdom. They accompanied by dozens of girls who wear traditional clothing. The cleansing ceremony is led by the last descendant of Gowa King. He is accompanied by seven traditional elders. Then, one by one legacies of the kingdom is washed with water considered as sacred.
