This chapter is about the religious and spiritual observances performed at gravesites in the Republic of Indonesia. The authors of this article have focused on the fact that some of the most important gravesites in this country attract visitors from more than one religion. They explain the non-hajj pilgrimage in Indonesia in general and then elaborately explain Mount Kawi pilgrimage center that is located in a forested hilly region about sixty kilometers from the regional city of Malang, in East Java. Drawing on theories of particularity and materiality, the authors try to bring a postcolonial state and its normative religious discourses into the picture.

Keywords:   tomb, Cult of Saints, gravesites, Indonesia, Ziyara, Mount Kawi
