Indonensia village where babies are buried inside trees (photos)

These are the tree graves of Indonesia where  dead babies are ‘buried’ inside the trunks of  living plants so they can be ‘absorbed’ by  nature.
The ritual takes place in the regency of Tana  Toraja, a remote part of the mountainous  region of South Sulawesi, 186 miles north of  the capital Makassar.
Villagers hollow out holes in huge tree trunks  before wrapping the deceased child in cloth  and then placing the infant inside.
The hole is then sealed over with palm fibre  and, as the tree heals over time, the body is  believed to be absorbed. Dozens of babies are  interred in each tree.

Only children who die before they have started teething are buried in this way with locals  believing the wind then takes away their souls.
I don’t know? But what do u think of these development.
