Kuningan marks the end of Galungan; the time when the ancestor spirits leave the island to return to their heavens above.
Event Details & Program
Special offerings are prepared with yellow rice (Kuningan is derived from the word kuning which means yellow) and placed together with fruit and flowers in a small bowl made out of coconut leaves. The offerings stand as a symbol of gratitude for all that life has given in happiness, health and prosperity.
It is believed that the ancestor spirits will ascend at midday and all special blessings and offerings should therefore take place before noon.
