|We shouldn't forget the religious fervour of this Hindu island. All through the day, processions and spectacular cremations are on the roads ; wearing their many-coloured clothes, the Balinese lay their offerings in the thousands of temples and oratories that are scattered all over the island. This religious fervour doesn't exclude hardly-fought games of dominoes until late in the evening (image down).|
An hinduist island
At the foot of the volcano Agung, the most sacred place in Bali, in the temple of Besakhi, all the day long, popular and simple fervour expresses itself through offerings and songs.
Cremation : a very spectacular ceremony...
