Hari Raya Galungan
1 November 2017
The climax of the Galungan holiday celebrations, the second most important Balinese holiday after “Nyepi” will see most Balinese returning to their ancestral homes to make offerings to God and their ancestors who came back to rest at this time in the family temple. Prayers and giving of offerings continue at the village temple as well as homes of neighbouring families who are closely affiliated with the family. Throughout the Galungan and Kuningan holidays, Bali’s streets will be decorated with the Penjor – tall, ornamental poles made of bamboo and filled with offerings that are usually placed outside homes and businesses.
