SELAMAT HARI RAYA GALUNGAN & KUNINGAN !
Last Wednesday, Sept 7th, the Balinese started the celebration of Galungan which commemorates every 210 days, the triumph of Dharma (good) against Adharma (evil). It marks the time when the ancestral spirits visit the Earth. The last day of the celebration is Kuningan, 10 days later on Sept 17th, when they return.
All over Bali, bamboo poles called « penjor », finely decorated with young coconut leaves decorations, adorn streets and houses. This is a unique welcome to Bali if you happen to be on the island during this period. If you miss this one, don’t forget to put in your diary the next one which will take place from April 5 to 15th 2017.
Happy Galungan & Kuningan !
