Cultural Event: Galungan Day
28 October 2021
Galungan is a traditional Balinese festival that celebrates the triumph of good over evil, known as Dharma and Adharma. The Balinese believe this is a time when ancestral spirits visit the Earth and return to their family home. For ten days, they are welcomed with grand celebrations, pilgrimages, ceremonies, and feasts. This ten-day visit culminates in the Kuningan festival when lots of roasted pigs, yellow turmeric rice, and traditional rice cakes are served. Elegantly curved and decorated bamboo poles known as ‘penjor’ will line the streets all over Bali. This makes the island even more beautiful than normal, so if you’re visiting for the first time, it is the perfect time to get a sense of the artistry and ceremony that makes Bali so unique.
