SIWA RATRI CELEBRATION
This beginning of the year was like no other for the Balinese, as they celebrated their biggest Hindu festival (Galungan & Kuningan) almost at the same time as the new year. Last Friday they also celebrated Siwa by going to the village temple (Dalem) in the evening to pray and often spend the whole night in meditation. It is also known as a night of introspection which is celebrated once a year. Pictured is the Siwa Statue at Gilimanuk Bay-West Bali National Park.
