Galungan and Kuningan

Galungan and Kuningan
#Celebration

Galungan and Kuningan represent the opening and closing days of the most festive period in Bali. The ten-day celebration marks the triumph of good over evil, beginning with deities descending to Earth, and then returning to the sky at the end of the holidays. Temples and homes are decorated with tall bamboo poles called penjor, which along with colourful offerings of fruit and flowers, make the island more vibrant than ever during this time. This year, it takes place from 19th to 29th February.
