Description
Accordng to Xavio Gomes Guterres, in the past this is where people from all over the east would come to receive the blessings of Luca (matak malirin). Delegations from Ossu, Baucau, Fatumaka. They would come for holy water to take back to their own places. They would bring goats as offerings and at night they would return with the water in bamboo covered in a cloth. The water gives both coolness (matak malirin) and intelligence to those who receive it.
