2018 Calendar of Balinese Temple Festivals : Revel in Their Life and Colour

Festive Bali | Written By, Life on the Island |

Bali is simply magical. The island has been dubbed the ‘Island of the Gods’, but could just as easily be referred to as the ‘Island of a Thousand Temples’. These temples, being sacred sites for the Balinese Hindus as worshipping places, are also important features on the island’s calendar of events and festivities. Bali’s unique calendar system, known as pawukon, rotates every 210 days and it charts the small to grand temple festivals or anniversaries known as odalan. Here we’ve rounded up the Balinese temple festivals (based on their piodalan, or anniversaries) from July throughout December this year to help you observe the festivities unique to Bali. It’s an absolute feast for the shutterbugs among you.
