Tanalot Temple, Bali, Indonesia (video)

 


I really loved the ocean temple of Tanalot. We were there on August 30, 2012 with many locals who were enjoying the spirit and sea air. At times, you cannot walk up to the temple due to the sea conditions. It is the first temple I have even been to that had a lifebuoy nearby!

We were there during the Balinese festival of Galungan which celebrates the victory of dharma over adharma. There were penjor- bamboo poles or towers with ceremonial offerings at the ends. During this time, the spirits of the ancestors visit Earth and return to their former homes, descendants are meant to be hospitable by making offerings. This holiday happens twice a year on a 210 day Balinese calendar.

This movie is from our two-month stay in Bali and Lombok, Indonesia (July & August 2012) and our year TRIP in South East Asia, see all the videos from our trip.
