Event Details

This holiday is the Balinese New Year, called Icaka New Year - a day of total silence throughout the island. No airplanes land or take off, no boats arrive. No activity, no traffic is allowed on the roads; no fire may be lit for 24 hours. Great purification and sacrificial rites are held on the day before, so as to banish evil spirits from every place on the Island - Ogoh Ogoh figures are built, then burned.
