Galungan & Kuningan In Bali

Galungan & Kuningan In Bali

11 June 2019

Galungan is a traditional Balinese festival that celebrates the triumph of good over evil, known as Dharma and Adharma. The Balinese believe this is a time when ancestral spirits visit the Earth and return to their family home. For ten days, they are welcomed with grand celebrations, pilgrimages, ceremonies and feasts. This ten-day visit culminates in the Kuningan festival, when lots of roasted pigs, yellow turmeric rice and traditional rice cakes are served. As part of Galungan, from May 29 to 31 this year, elegantly curved and decorated bamboo poles known as ‘penjor’ will line the streets all over Bali. This makes the island even more beautiful than normal, so if you’re visiting for the first time, it really is the perfect time to get a sense of the artistry and ceremony that makes Bali so unique.
On May 30, the Galungan celebrations reach their peak, as people put on their finest clothes to visit family members and temples. This is a time of year when the Balinese go home to their villages, so it’s a very happy occasion. During this period of celebration and togetherness, Plataran hotels and resorts welcome guests to join the festivities as members of our extended family across the world; there is no better time to witness the unique culture and ceremonial wonders of Bali, and rejoice in the joy of friends and family.
