The Yadnya Kasada ceremony ritual is held after the festival on July 1st or 14th day of the month of Kasada according to the traditional Hindu lunar calendar. This ceremony is a centuries old tradition of honoring Sang Hyang Widhi or Almighty God and is based on the ancient legends of Roro Anteng and Joko Seger.

The legend says the couple Roro Anteng and Joko Seger still have no children and decided to meditate at the top of Mount Bromo. The gods gave them 24 children on condition that the 25th child should be thrown into the crater of the volcano as a human sacrifice.

The Tenggerese climb the mountain together, then pray at the top of the mountain and throw the offerings into the crater. The human sacrifice thrown into the crater has now been replaced with livestock, vegetables, fruit, flowers and money. Several locals slid down to the crater, despite the obvious danger, to pick up sacrificed goods that were believed to bring good luck.
