For the sake of solemnity of the Kawalu, months of rice harvest season celebration for indigenous Baduy village Kanekes, they refused to be visited in a large group of people from outside. Signs appear in the harvest field for dry rice cultivation along the dirt path to their kampung (village). Various types of rice-paddy drying by the roadside.
The place to drying the rice, is extremely simple. Just a rack with two long bamboo poles that supported transverse wooden poles. Paddy-rice bound per 2 kilograms, then hanged horizontal line. So as not to wet with rain and dew, leaf topped shelf chiral (a kind of sago palms, Metroxylon rumphii). The roof is tilted to the highest in the direction of sunrise and low in the direction of sunset.

Although located on the edge of the trail that is often traveled, there are no reported loss of a sun-dried paddy. Adherence to custom make them not dare to steal each other. Residents from outside the Baduy were also respectful and did not dare to steal the rice either.
