Event Details

Celebrated on a cycle of 210 days, Galungan annd Kuningan are two of the most important ceremonies that take place on Bali. Celebrating the good over evil, Galungan day is filled with temple visits by every family, in all parts of Bali. With the smell of incense flowing through the air, there is lots to see wherever you may reside, as everyone takes to the streets and temples in their best dress of traditional Balinese clothing. 

On Galungan day, ancestral spirits descend down to earth for 10 days. Thus, Kuningan day marks the last day of celebration and hospitality to these guests, as this is the time when the spirits make their way back to heaven. This is a day of spending time with family and loved ones. 

Both celebrations are filled with happiness and positive flows of energy. It is a spectacular experience of the essence of Balinese culture and tradition.
