Metatah Ceremony in Bali


Metatah or Mepandes (Potong Gigi) is a sacred ceremony in Bali. Metatah is “cutting teeth” ceremony with traditional tools in Bali, and it only could have done by a Sangging. Sangging is a special person (maybe we can call them a holy person😀 ) who had a duty to cut the people’s teeth when the ceremony was held.
