Galungan is the most important feast for Balinese Hindus, a celebration to honor the creator of the universe (Ida Sang Hyang Widi) and the spirits of the honored ancestors. The festival symbolizes the victory of good (Dharma) over evil (Adharma), and encourages the Balinese to show their gratitude to the creator and sainted ancestors.
Galungan occurs once in the 210-day cycle of the Balinese calendar, and marks the time of the year when the spirits of the ancestors are believed to visit the earth. Balinese Hindus perform rituals that are meant to welcome and entertain these returning spirits.
Galungan is synonymous with Penjor mounting the curb in front of every house. So that makes the ambience modern look natural and beautiful. Penjor are ornaments made of bamboo and decorated in such a way in accordance with the traditions of the Balinese people. Penjor installed on the side of the road (each house) is itself a pray for Sang Hyang Widhi Wasa (God in Hindu religion). Galungan meaning of the word itself comes from ancient Javanese means to fight, or commonly referred to Dungulan means winning.
