Balinese Temple Etiquette
One of the foremost attractions of Balinese culture are the Pura or Temple, inside of which are some of the most beautiful and sacred Üpacara or ceremonies occur. The Balinese are happy to share their tradition, culture and ceremonies with visitors from outside their communities. When visiting the Pura or attending ceremonies in Bali it is customary to follow the local guidelines & traditions.
Usada’s temple etiquette experience begins with a talk and visual presentation that will highlight proper attire, temple etiquette, offerings and the meaning behind the prayers. We will also present some images of Bali’s most sacred pura and their respective directions and deities.
Putu Mahagiri is passionate about maintaining and preserving her Balinese cultural roots. She is Usada’s cultural liaison, born and raised in Peliatan, Bali. Besides, Putu is also committed to help empower women, especially Balinese, by offering sharing circles.
In Usada’s workshops and experiences, Putu, in her charming way, introduces the Balinese traditions and religious etiquette. She is delighted to share this experience with you!
