Garrett Kam on Galungen

The holy days of Galungen make up the most important Balinese holiday, this (Balinese) year falling on 1-5 February. During this holiday the Balinese gods visit the Earth, and family ancestors descend to their former homes. They must be suitably welcomed, entertained, and prayers and offerings made for them.

Learn about the legends, practices, beliefs and celebrations surrounding this central event. Garrett Kam joins us once again for this monthly series on Balinese Culture.
