Bali Plus - - DON’T MISS -

The Bale Ban­jar is the most fun­da­men­tal unit of civil so­ci­ety in Bali. Tra­di­tion­ally the epi­cen­tre of a vil­lage, the Ban­jar hall is a roofed, open-air pav­il­ion where the vil­lage’s mar­ried men hold meet­ings, set­tle dis­putes, and del­e­gate re­spon­si­bil­i­ties for co­op­er­a­tive work projects. At Ay­o­dya Resort Bali, guests will en­joy “hands-on” ex­pe­ri­ence of a Ba­li­nese Ban­jar with daily ac­tiv­i­ties in­clud­ing Ba­li­nese Rit­u­als, Cer­e­mony Prepa­ra­tions and Ba­li­nese Art Per­for­mances. This month, there will be a talk on “A Fu­ture for Bali Tra­di­tions in a Con­tem­po­rary World” By Pe­ter J. Wil­son and Made Sidia, no­table lead­ers in the the­atre world. Visit www.ay­o­d­yare­sort­ to find out more.

May is an im­por­tant month for the Ba­li­nese as they cel­e­brate Galun­gan, the big­gest re­li­gious hol­i­day next to Nyepi. It is the time to hon­our God and the an­ces­tors with in­tri­cate rit­u­als and cer­e­monies that are per­formed over a 10-day pe­riod. Pen­jors - tall bam­boo poles decorated with rice, fruits and co­conut leaves, dec­o­rate the streets. The fol­low­ing are Galun­gan-re­lated days that you won’t want to miss:
