Ogoh-Ogoh Parade On The Eve Of Bali's Silent Day

| Posted 03.07.2011 | Travel

On the eve of Nyepi, there are parades all throughout the island of ogoh-ogoh made by local villagers. Ogoh-ogoh are papier-mache effigies of gods and creatures taken from Hindu mythology. They are paraded through the village to much fanfare before being burned, symbolizing cleansing and purification from evil.
