Kuningan Day is 10 days after Galungan. You may notice businesses closed as Balinese Hindus’ return to their home to celebrate with their families. They participate in ritual prayers where they celebrate the return of their spiritual ancestors to heaven and express gratitude to the Gods.
Kuningan comes from the word “kuning” meaning yellow. The celebration of Kuningan is similar to Galungan, however yellow is used as an offering instead of white.
The bamboo poles known as Penjors, previously erected at the entrance to businesses and houses is redecorated substituting the colours of white with yellow. This symbolises prosperity.
