Cultural Event: Pagerwesi Day
30 August 2021
Pagerwesi is a special day on the Balinese Calendar, which falls on September 1, where the Balinese protect themselves from evil forces. Pagerwesi commemorates the day upon which an ancient battle between good and evil was fought. The word Pagerwesi translates to “iron fence”, symbolic for the day that the Balinese strengthen their fortifications against evil.
Pagerwesi Day reminds people to be wise and more aware of the function and power of knowledge. A series of ceremonies are held, colorful offerings are made and dedicated to the Lord of Jewelry – the “metals” specially dedicated to the gold jewelry and Chinese coins.
