Balinese religous festivaks

Festivals are an important feature of Balinese life. In general Temple festivals occur regularly on fixed dates according to the Balinese Calendar. That said, it is important to know that the Balinese calendar is only 210 days and as such the dates of these festivals rotate throughout the Roman calendar year.

As well there are annual cycle and every six month celebrations of holidays, life-cycle ceremonies of a Balinese from the time a child is conceived inside the mother’s womb and continuing in stages up until the most important of the Balinese rituals - cremation after death.
