Waterpurification at Tirta Sudamala
Join us in the Balinese Hindus with Purification at Tirta Sudamala, a cleansing ritual using spring water within the temple to get rid off physical and non-physical impurities. The Balinese Hindus use this holy water not only to purify the body, but also for the purification of valuable things such as buildings, vehicles and other equipment.
Community, Culture and Temple Tour
Observe local village events and ceremonies where you can learn about Hindu temple protocol, the Balinese interpretation of Hinduism in terms of ceremony rituals, and the history of passing culture on through the generations. Visit Tenganan, a pre-Hindu village where you will see their unique way of life, and Puri Agung, the royal palace in Amlapura where you will find old photographs of the royal family, the royal bedroom and costumes. Drive to the salak (snake fruit) plantations of East Bali in Sibetan and enjoy the fresh countryside air. This journey ends with a visit to Pura Besakih, the mother temple of Bali. It is most enjoyable during one of the frequent festivals, when hundreds of Hindu devotees come to pray, gorgeously adorned with beautifully arranged offerings. Ceremony Events schedule will be according to the Balinese calendar and local priests.”
