What is this?
Hi, dear readers, welcome back.
When we drive around Jakarta, we see it so often that we had to know. Our driver told us it is Penjor and it’s for Wedding. Meaning the house with the Penjor in front has a newly weds living there. A very public way of saying ‘Just Married’!
Nowadays, Penjor is not only featured at religious ceremony and weddings, it is also used in art performances, hotels, and at any occasion where there are guests of honor.
In fact, other than Penjor, there are also many different religious flowery decorations in Indonesia. Flower is part of Indonesia religion and culture.
