Events


In addition to the processions of cultural and religious rituals of daily life, of course, temple festivals occur all year round. The Odalan, for example, is the anniversary festival of a temple. Given the number of temples in Bali, you can practically find an Odalan every day. And on every Odalan, elaborately prepared offerings are presented to the gods and the goddesses, and nightly performances of ritual dances or wayang kulit, accompanied by the brilliant sound of a gamelan orchestra, gather the young and the old of the village.

Here are 2000 events. Remember, Balinese indigenous calendar system, the Pawukon year, cycles every 210 days.

For Nostalgia purpose: * 2001 * 2000 * 1999 * 1998 * 1997 * 1996 * 1995
