Gentong is a large bowl for water. Yesterday, my husband and I visited Sunan Ampel Mosque in Surabaya (East Java, Indonesia). The mosque was built in 1421 and it’s already becoming a famous destination of religious tour.
Around the mosque and graves of righteous men, there are several large bowls that contain fresh water from the natural water source nearby. The water is ready to drink and provided for every visitor in the area.
