One day before the Silent Day, there will be a parade of Ogoh ogoh in the form of giants around the village area. Ogoh ogoh is a kind of statue / giant doll in the form of evil spirit which is made of light materials such as the combination of wood, bamboo, paper, and styrofoam so it is easy to be lifted and paraded. It’s one of Hindu beliefs that is used to chase the evil spirit away from the house / village.

The day after Nyepi, all activities will go back to its normal state. 

The Silent Day or Nyepi Day has been Indonesia's national holiday since 1983.

We hope this peaceful Nyepi Day will bring you an unforgettable experience on the Magical Island of Bali.
