Tabuik is the local manifestation of the Remembrance of Muharram among the Minangkabau (or Minang) people in the coastal regions of West Sumatra, Indonesia, particularly in the city of Pariaman.

The remembrance draws a large crowd including dignitaries such as the provincial governor, to see Tabuik in the morning before it is slowly taken to the beach. At noon, before it is thrown into the sea, there is a lot of activity with Tabuik.

After they are thrown into the sea many people go swimming looking for 'memories' of the Tabuik to keep. The practice of throwing a tabuik into the sea has taken place every year in Pariaman on the 10th of Muharram since 1831. The practice was introduced to the region by Shi'ite Muslim sepoy troops from India who were stationed and later settled there during the British Raj. Read more on Last.fm.
