This research uses a qualitative method, which is written descriptively. The methods of data collection include field studies such as data collection methods include field studies by direct observation of the symptoms in the tombs of the Imogiri kings, conducting interviews with people involved in tomb activities, conducting participant-observers, following a number of rituals there, and literature study. The results of this study indicate that some community perspectives on the tombs of Imogiri kings that are considered sacred are formed from several factors such as history and mystical stories. This centralization then forms certain cultures and beliefs that have certain functions to fulfill the needs of human instincts as Malinowski's theory.
