The dukligan or fertility hut is the most interesting building at Tam Awan village. In traditional Ifugao practice mating couples stay there for a month. If the woman fails to conceive within that period, the man is allowed to sleep with another woman without forfeiting the marriage. The same treatment applies to the woman. She can sleep with another man to find out which of them is fertile.
