Travel Destination :: Bali. Children at the Penempaham Temple.
Bali is also known as “The Island of Gods,” and ceremonies are held for almost anything. During the more auspicious days, elaborate ceremonies are held such as this – the Full Moon Ceremony. Everyone in a village participates, including the children as seen here playing music. If Bali is your travel destination, be sure to arrange a visit to a local temple during a ceremony. What awaits you? Bursts of colour, festive music, praying in the Temple, traditional dress (which you will be required to wear) and a true sense of being a part of a Balinese community.
As I was the only foreigner in attendance, it is quite possible the children were as curious of me as I was of them. Expect a friendly welcome and many smiles. The Balinese enjoy sharing their culture with you. If you are seeking authentic adventure travel, Bali is the place for you.
