Bulldozers began settling the ground and transporting rocks and gravel in preparation for the ceremony which will last for 3 days, and which will be attended by nearly three thousand people.                

It is worth noting that the ancient forest is listed on the World Heritage List of UNESCO; a list that requires the protection of classified sites and their surroundings within an area exceeding 500 square meters; however, the preparation activities carried out in the vicinity may obliterate the existence of the forest.
