Galungan & Kuningan
September 16 – September 26, 2020
All of Bali
Galungan is one of the most important holidays of the year for Balinese Hindus because this is when the spirits of the ancestors come back to visit. Prior to Galungan, Balinese people erect penjor—bamboo poles decorated in coconut leaves and colourful fabric—in front of their businesses and homes and prepare offerings to welcome their ancestors back. Over the next 10 days, people pray at the temples, visit relatives, and feast with family and friends.
