Traditional Balinese wedding

Section: Bali / Culture.

A wedding is an important event in Balinese society. It is one of the rituals of yadnya, designed to bring the material and spiritual worlds into harmony.

The philosophy of Balinese offerings - or the essence of a beautiful purpose

Section: Bali / Culture.

All tourists who visited Bali sooner or later noticed small baskets of flowers, which Balinese carefully put at the doorsteps of houses or on a holy place in the house. They set fire to an aromatic stick and make enchanting gestures with their hands as if directing the smoke and fragrance of flowers to the sky.

The holy springs Beji Selati - Genah Melukat

Section: Bali / Attractions.

If you have already joined the Balinese tradition of ablutions melukat in holy springs, you probably already know such places as Tirta Empul and Sebatu. Tirta Empul is probably the most popular water purification site in Bali and it becomes particularly lively on the days when the Balinese come here for melukat according to Balinese calendar. Kajeng Kliwon Day is often chosen as the date. Kajeng, the third day of the three-day week, and Kliwon, the fifth day of the five-day week, are held simultaneously on this date. And it happens every 15 days.
