The tower containing the remains is taken to the cremation ground. Depending on the size of the ceremony, either the eldest son or a priest stands on the tower holding a 'paradise bird' which will guide the spirit to heaven. At the cremation ground the corpse is placed in the carved figure of a cow (a sacred animal).
